    So I have a 2009 MBP. I have been using a 1tb external firewire drive for backing up. I just purchased a 1tb Seagate and hooked it up to my wireless router and transferred my iTunes library over to it (300gb) so I can stream my media. Everything went great but I'm wondering now the best way to back up my iTunes library since it's on a network now?

    One way of doing it is to connect the HD to the MBP by time to time and back it up into the other HD. This works flawlessly if you don't add new data that often. You may be able to back it up wirelessly as well but it would take a long time.

    Yeah, I certainly don't want to back it up over my network, I copied everything over that way like an idiot and it took a day and a half.
