What is best practice to setup Sync to multiple USB drives?

I want to sync my files each day to USB_Backup_Drive_A then at the end of the week I want to swap/rotate to USB_Backup_Drive_B. This would allow for one on-line backup drive and one off-line backup drive. 

I have done this using one sync job but it appears the sync job is setting the files' archive bit for USB_Backup_Drive_A so it will not backup during week two to USB_Backup_Drive_B.   

Am I going to have to create multiple sync jobs or is there an easier solution?



  • @Netguydave, If you swap/rotate the target drive, it might be unable to sync all data. So, we still suggest that you create two sync task to set the target drive separately.
