Backup4all does not allow users to select multiple backup destinations for a single backup job. However, users can create multiple backup jobs assigned with the same backup tag and each job could have a different backup destination. When a backup tag is scheduled to run, all backup jobs containing that tag will run sequentially. It is specifically useful when you want to have the same backup stored on different destinations for increased data protection. For example you can have the same backup stored on a remote FTP location and also on an external hard drive - if one backup destination will become unavailable at least you can recover your data from the other destination.
