My Book Duo - how to backup entire, multi drive PC

Hi there. I’ve just purchased the Duo 12 TB USB unit. I use this system exclusively for film editing using Avid MC on a PC, Windows 7. I want to backup the entire PC which contains 3 drives; the operating system & 2 4TB drives. The control panel for the WD software seems like it will only backup one drive from the PC to the Duo. I’m sure that can’t be the case. Does anyone know how to configure a simple all drive incremental backup on the Duo? Thanks!


The regular SmartWare software will not recognize non WD drives as a source.

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply. That’s interesting. I already own Acronis backup software. Might it be a good idea to use it – given I have drives from various manufacturers?
