Best backup solution for Mac
11 months ago

1. I've used Carbonite.  painful exercise as it did not restore executables and I ended up with thousands of crap 2k pics of "faces" from iPhoto.  At least I didn't lose 8 years of photos.  A good cloud solution would be preferred but not for the 300 GB of files that we're talking about.

2.  Time Machine.  The online reviews were mixed.

3.  Seagate Wireless Plus.  I don't need access to music or movies.  iCloud works great for me to stream from the cloud.

My needs are twofold.

1.  Backup 10 years of family pictures mostly JPEG (300-500GB of content).

2.  Host Adobe Lightroom.

I will not be backpacking in the in the hills of Nepal with said device.  I just need something reliable.
