Hello, MacRumors! I've never been good in backing up. Up until now there wasn't much I really needed that safe on my home computer, but things change. We have a lot of photos on our main computer (MBP). I have decided to build a NAS using Raspberry Pi and an old drive (I am on budget). Since I am not that thorough and I was planning on using Time Machine so I don't have to think about making the backups. But since I will already have a Pi and we have a really good uplink connection I thought about making my own cloud, so we could access the photos from anywhere on an iPad and also avoid using Flickr or another service for sharing with friends and family. I've heard good things about OwnCloud, so I planned on using that However I am really confused what would happen if I started to mix backups with remote access. I guess I could just share the Time Machine partition on WAN and read the files, but wouldn't uploading a new file into the same space make a mess out of the backup? Is there any backup solution that would be as easy to maintain as Time Machine, but would also allow me to make it available in my Pi Cloud? I would like to avoid doing everything twice - keeping a backup and moving files onto the Pi for cloud access Thanks for any ideas! PS: I don't really care about whole bootable snapshots. It is the individual files that matter.
