When you detach one disk, you attach another one and the next backup will be created on another disk. If you enable rotated drives option on the repository, the job will not error out but create a backup on the currently attached disk.

1- if i want test rotate drive in my lab can i create 3 seprate single repository and select backup repository with rotate drive for all of them and in job wizard select one of them after 1st backup has been finished edit job and select second repository and run job ?
2- if yes when run job for second time on second repository will it get incremental backup or another get full backup ??

1 - imagine i have add repository with rotate drive and assign it to backup job for first backup it will be get full backup now i disjoin repository and tomorrow another attach that repository now while job start will get backup full or incremental ?
2 - image i have add repository with rotate drive and assign it to backup job for first backup it will be get full backup now i disjoin repository and tomorrow attach new repository to my job instead of previous repository now on this repository it will be get full or incremental backup ??

I don't see the difference between 1 and 2, please clarify. Anyway, after switching the drive, the regular backup job will create a full backup on the next attached one. Backup copy job is able to maintain incremental chain, provided the repository is Windows.

before that i think rotate drive can do such as raid 1 write backups in same time on 2 repository but you said it don't write data same time on 2 repository now is that correct rotate drive mode can not write data same time on 2 repository ?
