Hi everyone! I am not sure if this is the correct forum, but my MacMini is a 2009 and has an external 1TB USB drive. I have this drive mapped to my MacBook Air for iTunes. I use the external drive as Time Machine for my Mac Mini. I synch my iPhone with the MacMini as well. Finally, we keep all our digital photos on the external drive. My process for backing up the external data USB drive is to use Carbon Copy cloner to clone the drive to a second external 1TB once a month. I leave the MacMini on all the time and it is on a UPS. Is this safe? Should I be doing something else to back up all our music, photos, and data? We only have about 500gigs of data currently and have stayed around this level for the last year or so. Thanks for the help.
