    You don't have two "yo base" discs. It is showing you that your Backup disc is "yo base" and that "yo base" is available for other backups.

    It is excluded "from" the backup because it "is" the backup.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Don't do that or your backup will be destroyed.

    As bobtomay has said: Time Machine cannot back itself up so whatever Drive you use for TM and whatever you may call it, it will ALWAYS show in the "exclude" box.
