Backup to Two USB Drives as One?

Postby johnelle » Fri Apr 21, 2017 11:58 am

Now that I have moved from 2 spindles to a DS416play I am struggling to find external drives large enough to backup my data. I am full again. I just turned on the intelligent space option which may keep me going for a while but I am wondering if there is a way to use my multiple USB ports to expand a partition from my current 5TB USB Drive to a 2nd USB drive?

Seems like an obvious thing to want to do (even it if isn't technically possible). Anybody figure this out?

The answer from support was to divide the backup into multiple jobs backing up different folders to multiple drives. Not ideal but workable.
