Hello.I have three hdd in enclosures all separate,I use these for backing up my documents music photos and video by using the Microsoft sync-toy. Now my point is would it be advisable to run the three all together to make the backup which I do every weekend,Or should I run them one at a time. The layout is each enclosure has a power supply and each has an USB cable,now the three USB cables are connected to a mains powered USB hub and from the to my tower as its a desktop.Running windows seven,I also do a backup of the O/S by using Macrium reflect free issue..

Well back to the question will it be okay to run all three at the same time or run them one by one?. Any advice here Please.Thank You.

I would run one by one as there could be a risk of corruption of all 3 if run at the same time. Someone else may know better though.

3 separate for same reasons as Woolwell

probably one every two days

if one fails or gets corrupted you only then lose two days of work not a whole week.
