    I have 3 external drives...
    1. 2TB External to back up (with time machine) internal drive
    2. 3TB External Drive for Video Footage data to edit with
    3. 3TB External Drive to back up drive 2 (with time machine)...

    Can Time Machine do this, it seems default is to back up internal drive to any time capsule. I hope Time Machine can make seperate back up of my internal drive to drive #1 and a back up of my external drive #2 to drive #3


    Any help appreciated...

    I don't think so, you could use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) for this.

    Edit: It also does scheduled backup tasks.

    If possible, as you gain data, please update this post. with new information. I have found it extremely useful

    It might be complicated in the beginning but once you know CCC it is the one to use and better than the build in TimeMachine which to me is for "Dummies"

    As above, us CCC, but read about it before using it, it is extremely powerful and this means you can also mess up if you don't know what you do.
    If you have another empty disk lying around test drive it first.
