I have two more questions. :Evil:

1) Can I plug the external hard drive into the USB port of my TP-Link router? That would be for decluttering purposes.

2) When restoring to a replaced hard...

Wow, oh my Gosh, if I have to back up the back up that's "space ship redundancy". I don't store much if anything of importance, I just want the convenience of a back up. One less thing to think...

Would this be a good back up for my mid '11 iMac? "Good" for my needs:
I have a 500GB HD installed with 420 free, so I assume 1TB is adequate/ overkill.

Though it says "compatible for Mac" I'm...

Could be. It was so cold that the remote for the TV wouldn't work, and also the TV would randomly shut off.

Furnace failure was the cause for the extreme conditions.

High-speed fan comes on when too cold?

Long story cut short: I used my iMac in ambient 26F. When it started, the fan went to high speed mode (crazy...even when it's 85-90 here and it runs all day, the high speed fan has never come on). ...

That worked, but just for that one.

Why isn't everything in Finder? I'm looking at the d/l dates and the pics aren't in Finder. Or Downloads, unless Bluetooth isn't considered a download. ...

I transfer pics from my non-Apple smartphone via Bluetooth, but can't find where they end up. I'd like to believe they'd at least be in Downloads, but no. Not in Preview or iPhoto, either.

Face recognition can be unreliable. I have a boulder, pond, cluster of leaves, clouds and so forth pegged as "faces". I wish I could post them here, but they seem locked in to iPhoto.

I have 2 LG phones, one dumb and one smart neither of which are recognizable to the iMac using USB data cable. With the smartphone, Bluetooth saves the day. Sure would be nice to know why not.
