Can the system handle alternating incremental storage, i.e. I would like to use two USB-disks ("odd" and "even" - as per day of year). Full backup can't be a problem, but what about incremental? I already have a third unit running GFS as a powerdown/erroneous delete/you-name-it.

Hi,

Please refer to the article Backing Up to Removable Devices with Regular Drive Swaps, which gives information on how to configure backup to swapped drives.

Thanks - it will be helpful, when I have issues like "Make sure Agent for Windows is installed on the machine to be backed up. " figured out!
