backup SQL database

I have been using Bvckup for making a backup of a SQL database on one of our Cloud servers via a site-2-site VPN.
This has been functioning perfectly for a couple of years now.

Since last month we moved the database to a different server.
Now the database and log files are located on a different volume.

Is it possible to backup files on two different drives in the same job?
When I create two jobs there is a chance that my backup isn't consistent since there will be some time between the VSS created by the first job for the first drive containing the MDF files and the second job containing the LDF files.

Not directly, but you can rig it up using NTFS symlinks.

However for your setup you will also need Bvckup 2 to make VSS snapshots of two volumes _at once_ and this is not something that it is capable of doing at the moment.
