i was wondering if time machine backed up secondary drives. OSX is on C and all the stuff i care about is on D. I just want to be absolutely sure that by default it backs up the D drive as well.

You can select the drives you wish to back up in the Time Machine Preferences PaneI don't support candidates that will say anything to be elected, and avoid answering questions like the plague.

where would this pane be.i don t think i understand. i opened the time machine preferences and all i get are 2 options - select disk and options. select disk chooses where to back up the time machine and options lists what to exclude.
am i missing something ???

Long Linked Version: Apple Discussion
Short Version: The secondary drive needs to be formatted in Mac OS Journaled

ok i see now. that guide is for an external drive. mine is an internal partition d drive. the thing they wanted to change in preferences was an exclusion not addition of a drive. since time machine excludes external drives by default.
thanks anyway but im still not sure if it incuded my d drive in time machine. i didnt exclude it or anything.
