I am using TM with two disks. Say the latest backup is to disk 2.  When I enter TM it goes disk 2 without asking.  If disk 2 is not available, but disk 1 is clearly mounted on the desktop, it says "backup disk not available".  That's not because it cannot find disk 1, but because it keeps looking for disk 2.


The only way to tell it to look in disk 1 is to do a backup. After that, it can enter disk 1 fine as it becomes the latest. If I connect disk 2 again, it still enter disk 1.


My question is if this is the expected behavior.  (I wouldn't be surprising since there is no option what disk to access.)


Now, one of my disks is a network drive (Western Digital MyBook Live). WD say it is fully compliant with the TM specs and so far it worked fine, aside from the behavior I mentioned.


Thanks in advance.
