Hello. Currently, I'm using File History to backup my files to a external drive. This works fine. However, I would like to save a backup copy of my data on 2 different drives. I can't seem to be able to find a way to add more than 1 target backup drive in the settings.

Is it at all possible to add multiple target drives to File History? Thank you.

I may be wrong, but I don't think what you want to do is possible.

At the bottom of the page of "More options" from the File History page it states that you have to stop using the current backup drive in order to backup to another drive.

It may be that there are 3rd party solutions that work around this - but I'm not aware of any.
