SD 3.01 - Now that SD is using launchd, is there a way to run 3 or more SD backups back-to-back in a given order?

I want to round-robin my backups on 3 disks so I can go back 2 backups if necessary.

Thanks, Smitty

We've been using launchd for a long time. Not sure how that's related here. You can have multiple backups scheduled for the same time (and always could)...?

But not in a predictable order. I have 3 SD copies that must run in order one right after the other. How would I do this?

You have to go A->B->C?

We can certainly set them to run one after the other by setting them all to the same time. They'll run back to back. If you have A and B, your can set B to run a few minutes after A to guarantee that time.

Three, though... the two waiting in line will run in an undefined order.
