Dears,

I want to use 2 different disks to take my server backup. But I want to take at two different times at two different places. So I attached two disks and configured server backup on different times. I added both disk as backup destination and scheduled backup at 1pm and 3 am. But windows is doing backup only on the 1st disk. How can I make windows to take backup 1pm at disk1 and at 3am at disk2. It should be automatically I don't need to swap disks manually.

Thank you for the help.

Are you using one single job and trying to achieve this.  If yes, there is no way to do it.
Check if windows backup can create two jobs.  If yes, for one job provide the path of one disk and for another backup, provide the path of the next disk.

it can't be done with single task.
it requires multiple tasks, each task points the destination and backup type.
