Can you run Time Machine for 2 separate drives?

Hi guys,


My current setup is with Mac OS Big Sur installed on a 1TB NVME drive. All my demanding files like Logic Pro X files and video editing files are also stored here.

I've got a separate internal 1TB HDD where I store the rest of my bulkier stuff like photos, movies, documents etc.


I've also got a spare internal 2TB HDD that I'm thinking of using as a backup drive via Time Machine.

Is it possible to have this drive run as a Time Machine backup for both the NVME (Mac OS installed) and the other HDD (files storage)? Alternatively, if it only backs up one drive, do I have to manually backup the other files from the other HDD?

Hope that makes sense.
