I have been given a Firewire Lacie HD as a gift. it has 1TB. I'm at a loss though as the best way to use it. Yes.. for Time Machine.. but what else? Maybe this is a daft question But having this extra capacity sitting there unused seems wrong somehow. Apart from Time machine is there anything else that it is in my best interests to put on the HD.. to get me up and running again quickly if the worst was to happen and the HD inside the Mac were to die horribly. I have already created a partition 40% for Time machine and 60% 'free' Its a Mac Mini 2011.
