How can I change the external drive which I am presently using as TM back up and set up another external to perform TM backup?

Sorry for this long winding question!


When my Mac was taken to the service center recently, I had used a 1 TB thunderbolt drive to back up the Mac's internal HD. Now I need to release this thunderbolt from functioning as TM backup and use a 3TB Seagate external hard drive [this was given me by the company as a replacement of a failed 2 TB drive which I had handed over to their agent] for performing TM back up. May any one direct me how to do this?

Thanks in advance.
