No option for data mirroring in scheduled task?

I want to have my tlog backups mirrored in real time. However it doesn't seem that the SQL Backup software does it? Does the Pro edition?

I know I can have the log back up hourly.. I do that now. But I wanted to check out the redgate backup so I could tell it to mirror my backups to external media as WELL as the raid array it currently backs up to.

Am I doing something wrong or is this feature not availible (for both database backup and t-logs).

I see you can do it through the backup wizard (just not a scheduled task)?

    It is possible, though you would need to change the script manually, to add the MIRRORTO option and values. It was not included in the Schedule Backup wizard, to keep the GUI simple.
