Finally, the purpose of this is for some of our large servers that have Multiple volumes. Is there any problem selecting multiple drive letters under Backup selections tab? In other words, rather than list 1, can I list 8 different volumes?

Be careful with this.  When the parent job starts, it will immediately create all of the snapshots.  If some of the child jobs don't start for a while, you'll have a snapshot out there wasting space (and giving you possible performance degradation on the client) for nothing.

In general, because of this (bad, IMO) design, I create a single policy per FlashBackup volume.
