    I bought a 2 TB external to back up my iMac hard drive plus another 1 TB external. When I use time machine, it only backs up the mac hard drive even though the other external is connected to the iMac. How do I get it to back up the other external as well?

    Both externals are WD passports and mac compatible.

    TIA :hat:

    Put everything you want to backup in one file, right click and send to that external harddrive.

    The only true question here is whether it's the 2 TB drive or the 1 TB drive that's dedicated to pron?

    In preferences, there's got to be some way to select what gets backed-up...dig around.
