    I have an iMac with 10.6, there is one external drive that Time Machine uses as backup and there is another external drive, how can I configure Time Machine to backup both my Internal drive and the second external drive:confused:

    TM can backup external HDDs if you haven't excluded it in System Preferences > Time Machine > Options.

    Or am I remembering incorrectly? I always had to exclude external HDDs when I used TM.

    This is, in fact, how I back up my iBook G4 (which is running 10.4.11, and therefore can't use TM). I connect it to my desktop system in Firewire target disk mode.
