1 Lap, 2 HDDs set up --> backup??

How will that work?

I have my lap hooked to an ext at present, and moved my music library on to the ext as it got out of hand (I didn't get rid of my original 80G HD from the BlackBook until a few months ago)

But now, I'm considering bringing the music back on to my lap via a 2 HD set up - 1 boot w/ apps and other data where I would put music among other items.

How does the back up work?? Will Time Machine ask which HDs I want to backup? or will it automatically back up both in sep folders?

Yes TM will simply back up all the drives it sees in your laptop. If you like you can exclude drives or folders but by default it will try to back it all up.

Perf. Thanks for that. Your 13" specs sound like a screamer.
