    Hi

    Recently purchaced another drive and had it mounted so i can back up. I would to do this automatically from within
    WHM. I am tring to configure the backup and am not sure
    of this:

    Backup Destination (this should be a dir/nfs/coda mount with at least twice the space of all your /home* partitions. Setting this to /home is a VERY BAD IDEA.):

    The backup destination is currently defaulted to /backup

    Any help getting this setup is apprciated,

    Thanks

    If the drive is not partioned and formated then you need to do that first.

    A good partion to assign the second disk would be /backup and format and mount the drive.

    Then configure your backup script to use the partion /backup
