I hope this is the correct forum to place this question. I have a client who is in need of a backup option for several devices which include old school macs and a newer mac laptop, iphone 4 and ipad. I have a couple solutions in mind but would like to find out if there might be other solutions that are less costly for the client and a lot easier for her to get a grip on. Client has an old Mac desktop (Power Tower or G4), an old Mac laptop from 2008, a new Mac Book Pro, an iPhone 4 and iPad. I do not have Mac versions of OS from Client (awaiting callback on the versions). But she does graphic design and needs to backup all her files from all of her devices to one solution. Was considering through newer mac os x on laptop to external drive and then everything up to Carbonite. All of the devices have a lot of information stored on them, mostly photos; the 2008 laptop's capacity is full, and the iPhone and iPad are nearing capacity. Customer uses her computer for a lot of graphic designing for her business. Suggestions or then routing most through the newer mac laptop and onto an external drive?
