Rotating multiple external drives? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to perform backups to multiple external drives that are rotated on a regular basis?  I would like to run a differential backup Monday through Thursday and a full (manual?) backup on Friday to one external drive.  Then take that drive offsite and rotate-in another drive and start again.  The new drive may be blank or it may have may an older set of backup data.

    1. Is this possible?

    2. If the latest backup data isn't present on the backup device, will OneCare run a full backup, as opposed to a differential?

  • This is not possible with OneCare unless you run a new full backup with each disc change.
