I might be missing something, I have not really found a good in depth description of what I am trying to do. Maybe someone can run me step by step with this.

I have three internal volumes, which I am trying to backup to one FW volume. (I am not opposed to partitioning). I have set up the schedules (1 for MWF, one for TT). I have two firewire disks, which are meant to rotate out.

No matter what I set up, it only ever copies the second volume. That's it.

So, here is my setup:

The three source volumes:
pod1
pod2
pod3

And then I have two backup FW disks (for rotation/offsite backups)

Backup1. (MWF)
Backup2. (TT)

Only pod 2 backs up. No matter what I try. I need some help, and I think I am missing something.

So, my question is: what is the best way (step by step) of getting the three internal volumes to back up, on a regular nightly schedule?

Thanks in advance. And, sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere. I like SD alot, and its certainly better than Retrospect. =)

There s hould be no trick here, Duo: you'd set up each backup, hit the "Schedule..." button for each, set the times (to the same time, to make it easy). Each volume would be scheduled two times (MWF and TT).

Do you see the appropriate number of backups in the Scheduled Copies window?
