My Time Capsule is dead, and it was from the first generation of them. My question is whether the combo base station and back-up is worth it. The base station part of it worked fine, but I had monthly problems with the automated back-ups, and 2-4 times a year would have to format the back-up and start fresh. I am not sure I see the need for automated back-up of data, and would be fine manually doing it once a month. Any tips on what options/devices I should consider? Thanks.
