Believe me, I have read through 20+ threads on this forum about backup solutions, pros and cons of each media and method. I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do. However, before I make the purchase for CrashPlan and a replacement LaCie device, I wanted to hear opinions from people who know backup best. Here is a quick diagram of what I put together. If you need anything explained, please ask. Thanks! Update: New diagram in post #15.
