Hi I'm backing up as follows: • Time machine to Time Capsule copy Parallels .pvm file to TC • CCC TC to USB 3 spinning drive (to speed things up I copy the .pvm to the USB 3 drive before clone) I keep this drive under the passenger seat of car • Backblaze to cloud Three questions please. >How reliable are TM backups? is "verify backup important" is there a way to check all is okay? https://www.lifewire.com/verify-time-machine-backups-2260096 >Is it okay to clone the TM backup to the USB 3 drive backup verses a rMBP to USB 3 CCC backup? I have decided that keeping my USB 3 backup under the passenger seat of my car is not ideal. I have bought an inexpensive safe that I'm going to set in concrete in the garden and cover with an orniment. The USB 3 drive is in a hard case and I was going to keep in a zip lock bag to protect against moisture / damp. >With temperature at a possible - 10c in the winter and damp with the WD spinning drive be okay in a safe in the ground? Thanks in advance.
