I have a Windows Server Essentials 2012R2 with 4 clients.  I am trying to make encrypted backups both to an internal and external disk.  I believe that as long as I encrypt the disks with bitlocker that element will be handled (true?), but I don't see who to select an internal disk for back up.

True, just encrypt the backup disks. Please be aware that backups should be easily accessible - encrypting them can of course lead to total data loss if for some reason you lose the key or corruption occurs...that's why I do unencrypted backups and lock them away.

To select an internal disk, please look at
wbadmin /?
That command will let you choose what you need, be it internal, external or network.

When I use the wbadmin GET DISKS command, I don't see the back up disk listed, though it is visible in disk management.   Does that mean something is wrong?  What argument should I use to direct the backup to disk I wish to use?

Many thanks for your very clear responses.

If it has a drive letter, it will work. Type wbadmin start backup /? to get working command examples.
