    Hi there,

    I'm wondering if there is any fancy way to in one way or another have time machine back up two places at the same time.

    I have one server, and one usb disk and I would like my time machine to back up in both places at the same time.

    Is this possible in any way? I just wanna make sure my backups aren't only one place.

    I have the same problem. I have a Time Capsule at work and another one at home. I'd like my laptop to backup to both.

    So far, the only solution is to manually change the TM settings every few days - so I use one TC for a few days, then switch to the other. OK so one of the backups will be a few days old, but that isn't too bad.

    There is a possible way involving using Automator and location awareness, but I can't really be bothered to figure it out.
