Portable Hard Drive Recommendation?
Dec 13, 2008

Hi there fellow Mac users,

To date, I have been backing up my photos and music onto DVD's.

Well, with the low prices of drive space these days, I've wised up and decided to pick up a hard drive.

I see a Western Digital 500GB Passport on Amazon for $139. Are they reliable and easy to use?

Also, Is there a way to back up my Aperture organization structure? Getting the photos back is one thing, but I would hate to have to reorganize everything.

I use a newer Macbook and a 24" iMac, which brings me to another question:

Is there a way to sync my Aperture organization structure from the iMac to the Macbook?

Thanks in advance for any and all input,
Jody
