Im hoping someone can help me.


I have a Mac mini server running snow leopard.


I currently use time machine to back up to second install harddrive.


I need to add another harddrive to back up to is this possible with snowleopard.


The second drive would be using time machine for the backup.


Any advice would be appreaciated.

    Hi Greg,


    With Snow Leopard it is not possible to select multiple destinations with TimeMachine.

    You might consider using another backup tool like Carbon Copy Cloner to get another backup otherwise upgrade to Mountain Lion so you can choose more than one destination.

    In the end an upgrade might be the best way to go.

    My 2c

    dont rely on TM for a good backup of a server.


    Use CCC or SuperDuper to maintain at least 2 clones.

    You can use TM to suplement, but your go-to in the even of a problem would be the clone.
