Ok the server has Windows SBS 2003.  We are going to use NTBackup and two external usb hard drives for backup.  One external hd will stay there for good, the other will be taken offsite on the weekends.  I plan to just setup a backup schedule that will send the backup to both drives nightly.  My question is since the second drive will only be connected for some of the backups (around 5 out of 7) will it cause the backups to fail when it is not connected?

Also any tips on ways to schedule/implement this better would be great. Thanks.
