URgent: Best back up system for Mac? Nas/Raid/Drobo?
 
Hi there

Due to reasons I won't bore you with I really need to get a decent back up system on the go!

I wish to buy today/this weekend, so I'm turning to my fellow Mac Forum users for help!

What is the best back up system for Mac?

NAS.... Raid (which?)... Drobo? Something else entirely?

I can get my hands on a 4bay drobo at a pretty good price... I also use one at work... would this be the wway to go?

All ideas, tips, links, hints, suggestions and plans welcome! :-)

Before you jump onto technology, have a read at the backup sticky in the Switcher Hangout section and have a look at this thread as well.

Then make up your mind .... Technology is the last thing to think about.

Cheers ... McBie

Is there some particular reason you didn't mention that you don't find an external drive plus Time Machine to be adequate?
