View Full Version : Schedule Multiple Automatic Backups?

03-27-2014, 02:47 PM
I am trying to schedule automatic backups:

1. iMac drive to external drive.
2. External drive to external drive.

All I seem to be able to schedule is one automatic backup. After I enter the parameters for the second backup it doesn't appear in the schedule…

Mavericks 1.9.2

Hold down Option when creating the 2nd schedule, Mojo. (I'm rather surprised it's not allowing it, if the drives aren't the same.)

I tried holding down the keyboard option key just when I clicked the schedule button and again while I completed all the steps. It still would not accept a second scheduled backup.

FWIW, the external enclosures are from Maxtor and Other World Computing.

I can't reproduce this, Mojo. Can you send a support email with information from the Console application when you're doing this?

Hi Dave- I'm setting this up on a friend's Mac so it will have to wait until the next time I am over there. What are the exact steps for gathering the info you need?

Open the Console application, switch to "All Messages", clear it with the toolbar button. Then try to create the schedules.
