As it's a always a good idea to have an 'off site' backup. I thought of buying an external HD, setting it up at a family members house and backing up to it through time machine and an internet connection. I would prefer not to pay for a costly 'remote backup' subscription. Could someone guide me through the steps necessary to make this happen. Or suggest an alternative approach to automatically backing up offsite? One problem I can foresee is the large volumes of data involved, pictures, video etc. (even though I could do the initial backup through a 'hard-wired' connection.) Thanks in advance.
