I was wondering the exact same thing!

If you wanted to do it then all you would have to do would be to open the two hard drives in finder, and copy the files from one external drive, over to the backup external drive. I cant see that not working.

It seems you are making it very complicated for yourself.

So what you could do is...use time machine to backup your internal hard drive to an external hard drive. That can be automated using time machine. Then backup that external hard drive onto your second external hard drive by the method I mentioned earlier (drag and drop).

Does this make sense?
