Hi all..

I have Mac mini (1 TB) that has all my movies on i stream from that to two Apple TV's. One Macbook Pro Retina, and one Windows 7 box.

What's the best way to back up both PC and Mac..

I have 2x2 TB backup drives i use to backup my iTunes library on my mini (which i use to home share)

So, i thought splitting the 2x 2TB in two partitions each,, one with HFS+, one with windows, and back data up over network (external drive will be connected to mac mini usb port)

AM i going down the right path here? or should i just get a NAS..? which basically means i'll also need to keep mac mini since it NAS's don't stream to directly to Apple TV
