I have mulit backup, so its Master file A, and backup file B\C\D.
like A→B, and sometime A→C, and sometime A→D, I notice that this will creat a databace named sync.ffs_db, and it always the same name.
What info inside "sync.ffs_db"?
like will it crash because the "sync.ffs_db" in file A will be use 3 times?

(I won't do it at the same time, and they are like cold backup - all in different hard drive and I won't plug in them all at a time. I am using Win10, NTFS, latest Donation Editon)

(Interesting question.)

So are you actually crashing?

.ffs_db is explained in Detect Moved Files.

And, straight from the horses mouth, see here.
So, your single sync.ffs_db file in A contains relevant info on all three syncs (A=>B, A=>C and A=>D).
Your use case should not give rise to any errors or risks in this respect.
