Is your /home on its own partition?

You want to backup your user's home then set the source as /home and it will back up all your user's homes. Is this what you want to achieve?

Is your /home on its own partition? NO.
This is a two HDD connected.
1 – is the main working drive with the home folder that I want to backup.
2 – is the external HDD that i want backup to.
