    Hi all,

    I know we can setup multiple TM drives such that multiple copies are made. Is there any ways to setup multiple TM with different folders to back up for each?

    For instance:
    TM1 backs up HDD1 only
    TM2 backs up HDD2 only

    Thanks in advance.

    What are TM1 and TM2? You can share one TM drive among multiple computers.

    You can also use multiple TM drives for one computer, http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11452.

    But I don't know of any way to make it so that they backup different folders.

    Yes.
    Simply plug in tm drive one. Select the folders you want to back up to it in tm prefs.
    Unplug it, plug in tm2. Do the same.

    You can then plug them both back in, and whenever you do, backups will be made to each.
