we are a small design agency and work with a G4 as our server, with os x server (tiger) running. superduper is used to do the daily smart backups of our data-raid onto a firewire-harddisk.

so, our problem is: we have two firewire-disks, and we want them to change every week. so that in week 1 disk 1 is used for the backup, in week 2 disk 2 is used for backup, in week 3 disk 1 is used for backup, in week 4 disk 2 is used for backup. OK, so far everything is fine.

but: what about next week? it is definitly the 5th week of the month, and super duper doesnt count to the 5th week - so that the next scheduled backup after tomorrow is on the 3rd of july.

what should i do? is our backup strategy possible using superduper? thanks for your help!

We count the short "5th" week of the month in the 4th. So, you'll do some additional backups to the 4th week drive until you switch months...
