10.5: Use multiple Time Machine disks for redundancy
Authored by: pbeyersdorf on Jun 05, '09 05:49:06PM

I have two time machine disks - one connected at all times and one stored off site. Unlike this hint though, I don't rotate them. Once a month I bring home the off-site disk, connect it to do a backup and then take it back to work. This way the local disk stays up-to-date with hourly backups and I don't have to figure out which disk last weeks file is on if I need to restore. Of course the remote disk only has a monthly archive but I think this is a more useful solution than true rotation.
