Backing up 2 ext hard drives

I ran out of room on my 500g iMac-so I plan to move my aperture library to a 1.5T external drive. I have a second 1.5 T drive that I want to use to back up the library drive AND the imac using Time machine. How do I connect everything and set up time machine to back up the mac and ex. drive?

Plug it in and watch it go

Open preferences > Options and make sure that the Aperture 1.5TB drive is NOT in the list of excluded drives

Should do it for you


BTW. No need to post this question 3 times, unless you have an itchy trigger finger that is.

That easy?

Thanks for the tip-didn't realize it could be that easy. WIll give it a try. I didn't mean to post 3 times-the dialog box kept telling me "there is something wrong with your post" and I didn't realize they were up. Thanks again!
