10.5: Use multiple Time Machine disks for redundancy
Authored by: mazzaroth on Jun 04, '09 04:08:22PM

This is what I've been doing for over 6 months now.

I have 2 Disks of 1 Tb. One is offsite, the other one is used as time machine disk. Every week, I take the connected drive, bring it to my off site, swap the drives and bring back the other one, connect it, switch time machine to it and voilą.

Both my laptop and my desktop are backed up on the same drive.

Once boostraped, I never have all my data at the same location and the worst that can happen is that I lose 1 week of data. Data is worth way more than the computers - the computers, I can buy back. Data, I can't.

Works perfectly.
