If I read between the lines, you don't want the files on the external HD to be duplicated in the notebook, you
only want the changed files to be there, so that they can be carried to the other HD. Is this correct?
If so, I'm afraid it goes beyond what Unison can currently do.
However, if you are ready to also have a copy of the files on the notebook, then it's simply a matter of setting
up two profiles: one to synchronize between notebook and external HD 1, and another between notebook and
external HD 2.
