Title: Spanding more than one Hard Drive. ???
Post by FromNashville on May 5th, 2013 at 1:28pm
I need to incremental backup a HD that is 2Tb with 1.5Tb of data.  My only spare hard drives for the back up is only 1Tb.  I have two of the the 1tb drives. 

I could not find out how to tell Ghost how to span (?) the backup over the two drives.

Can Ghost span two or more drives?  How?

What's on the 1.5 TB HD? A single or multiple partitions?

The 2Tb drive has only one partition with about 1.5Tb of data located in about 30,000 different files.

I don't think so.

Interesting.  I've never done it as a *normal* routine.

I don't know about Ghost 15, 14, 12, 10, or 9...but I know Ghost 2003 was programed to offer that option.  As a matter of fact, just last week when I forgot to clear off enough old image files for a new one, Ghost popped up a screen asking if I wanted to enable spanning to additional media because there wasn't enough room on the selected destination drive.

How about TeraBytes backup software--spanning multiple drives to hold an image available?
