    Explain exactly what you mean when you say backup, and maybe go through your steps it setting it up.

    L: is your external drive and you want to back it up also?

    You need to answer the original question and explain exactly what you are doing. I know of at least 3 different ways to "backup". What utility are you using, how are you setting it up, etc....?

    Before you answer, most backup utlities allow you to select which folders to backup. If your are using Easy Transfer Wizard, go to Custom-Advanced and deselect the External drive.
