Two into One back-up
Hey guys, I have a bit of an issue....
I have a Macbook Pro 2011, my wife and I have seperate iTunes so we use the same Mac on different log-ins. We have a ton of files (Mostly photos) on both sides of the Mac that I want to back up. I have just taken delivery of a WD My Passbook 2tb.
I was just going to use Time Machine but it seems that wont work the way I want.
Any suggestions on how i can do this or do I need a second hard drive?
For myself (MBPro & iMac), I have each on TM w/ separate external HDs - usually recommended to devote the entire drive to a single TM backup. Also, I do bootable clones of each machine using Carbon Copy Cloner (have 2 partitions on another external HD). Finally, for our personal files (pics/music/documents), I have another smaller external SSD for my laptop & use Carbonite (online) for my wife's iMac.
SO, I'd certainly use your current WD for a TM backup, and then at least another external HD (or USB drives of appropriate size) to duplicate backup of your personal files; and you might want to look into the cloning options - plenty of info here - Dave
