2 USB external drives rotating
Posted on 2006-11-30
I am using a software called SyncBack (free version) to back up the files on a server (just an XP Pro PC) to 2 external USB hard drives. I plan to switch them out every other week. So, one week I use USB1 drive and the next week I use USB2 drive. I have told XP pro to use the same drive letter for each drive, this way we do not have to alter the Backup Job to use a different drive letter.
Will this work? If not ,is it because of the same drive letter. Does anybody else have this type of setup? Maybe some one could recommend a better solution. My ears are open to suggestions.
