10.5: Use multiple Time Machine disks for redundancy
Authored by: SOX on Jun 04, '09 08:47:52AM

sounds like an improvement. The trade off is risk aversity to catastrophe and how valuable a months work is. I happen to live in a lighting heavy area so keeping one disk unplugged is appealing.

important tip: when you innaugurate the new disk, don't try to get clever and copy the old disk to speed thing up. let time machine do it itself. it's imprtant that time machine know you have two disks which is will mark with different disk ID numbers so it can tell. if you make carbon copies you will fool time machine and it will not make faithful syncs. that is, just let it do it it's way , don't try to out smart it.
