Re: Storage Solution?

Here is our backup strategy, which works well for us.
Me, my wife and our daughter have MPB, MBA and MB, respectively. We also have. 2008 Mac Mini hooked up to our television set. We have an external drive connected through FW800 (Drobo). We use File Sharing to share the Drive on our LAN. Everyone backs up once per day to this drive using TimeMachine. All I need to do is remind everyone not to close the lid on their computers when they go to sleep. The backups happen during the night and then their computers go back to sleep.

We also use the Mac mini for movies, photo storage and Netflix. An extra bonus is that we have the email app running too, so it sorts incoming junk mail. That means that the inboxes on our iPhones don't fill up with junk.
