    Hi Everyone,

    After doing a little research I failed to find the answer to this question, so I thought I would post it here:

    I am now using two hard drives, as my iMac internal drive was running out of space. My question is: is it possible to have both hard drives (internal and external) back up automatically using Time Machine, and if so, how?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Yeah - just remove the external from the list of exclusions within Time Machine settings and it will be backed up along with your internal drive

    Ah, I see. In other words, I don't have to do anything at all.

    Thank you for your response.

    You may have to remove the removable drive from the list of exclusions - I've noticed Time Machine seems to add them automatically
