Backing Up Backup

Recommended Posts

I am a new Retrospect user, using Retrospect Professional version 7.7.562 I am backing up my computer and 2 external drives, 395GB, 325GB and 296GB respectively. They are being backed to a 3 TB external drive. I notice that in addition to the 3 backups that I want the product is also backing up the files on the 3TB drive. This seems like a waste of resources and it is using valuable space on my backup drive. Is this normal? If it is not normal how can I prevent the back up of the back up drive?

What have you selected as your backup 'Source'? The whole computer? If so, try just selecting the drives you want to backup (i.e. all of them except for the destination drive) instead.


Let us know if you need a more detailed description of how to do this.
