Could you link me to the process of doing this properly?

What you need to do is to set up two jobs.  

1) Make sure that the selection lists for the two jobs do not overlap.  For example, if Job1 backs up Folder1 then Job2 should not backup Folder2.

2) If you have 2 B2D folders, then target each job to each of the folders for better concurrency.  If you have only 1 B2D folder, then make sure that the number of concurrent job property of the B2D folder is set to at least 2.

3) If you have only 1 tape drive, you cannot run 2 jobs at the same time to the same tape drive.
