External HD Recommendation
11 months ago

My 2009 iMac has been behaving erratically, and Apple has recommended replacing the HD.  I have been running Time Machine on an external HD, so hopefully all is well.  Taking it to the shop today.

The external HD is a Lacie, bought when I got the iMac, so it is 4 years old as well.

1. Would it be prudent to go ahead and replace the ext. HD?

2. Is it possible to run two ext. HDs on Time Machine for redundancy? I was thinking I might as well keep using the Lacie until it dies, to get another layer of redundancy.

3. I have read some negative things about Lacie reliability lately.  Any recommendations on another brand?

Thanks!

Jim Thomas
