    I have setup many people with the Cobian backup software to backup their PC's usually to a USB 'stick' or external hard drive. The program works great except when we use multiple backup devices. I usually have everyone use 2 USB drives and rotate them weekly. They backup everyday or every other day with a FULL backup and I usually have Cobian save 3 copies of the backups. This works fine when we use just 1 USB drive for the backups, after the 3 backup it deletes the old one to only keep 3 copies. The problem is when we rotate the 2 USB drives. It tries to delete the old backup but sometimes it is on the other backup drive and it can't find it to delete it. the backup still goes through but over time the backup drive fills up. Does anyone know a workaround for this or any other Free software that I can use to do these simple backups??
