Use multiple drives with Time Machine
Authored by: barefootguru on Sep 17, '12 03:04:54PM

Instead of 'volume with oldest backup' the logic appears to be 'volume with oldest *attempted* backup'. Most of the time this is the same, but if a backup fails that volume will miss its turn and have to wait in the cycle again—which makes sense—if an error is preventing a backup to a particular volume you don't want all backups to wait on that volume.
