How must I do, to back-up my Mac Pro, which has 4 HDD's inside (OSX 10.8 , OSX 10.7 , OSX 10.6 & OSX 10.5)...?

Or does Time machine back-up everything in 1 single action (meaning I don't have to make different partitions on my Time Machine Ext HD)...?

I need the 4 OSX's to run different programs. (not all 3rd party-devices are compatible to OSX 10.8.3)


Untill now, I partitionned my Time machine Ext HDD into 4 partitions, to make a back-ups starting from each OSX seperately... (too complicated...)

Is there a simple way to back-up everything in 1 action...?


Thanks, H.

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), + OSX 10.7 + OSX 10.6 + OSX 10.5
