Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I need to buy an external hard drive for two purposes: transferring files from an old computer to a new one (basically a one-time use) and for the long run I need to back up the files on my two home computers (both Macs).
So I was just going to buy a firewire Hard Drive to transfer the files, but I was hoping there was a good alternative to Time Capsule that could automatically backup files for both of my computers (without slowing them down during the backup process). Does such a thing exist?
One computer is a Mac Mini and the other will be a MacBook replacing an iMac.
Am I better off backing up files manually? Do I need to have more than one hard drive? Any brands I should look for? Any brands I should avoid (besides Time Capsule)?
