    I work for a small design studio. We have 5 Macs, and currently have half a dozen external hard disks for backup and archiving. A mix of time machine and manual copying. It's getting messy!

    So we want a better solution. Something that will automatically backup all the computers and have enough capacity to store 3-4 years of work. Probably around 3-4TB. Something reliable, network-able and cost effective. The plan would be to have it stored in a fireproof safe in the basement.

    Suggestions welcome, thanks.

    They do make external drives that live in fireproof boxes, but you're looking at a large outlay of moola there.

    Take a look at the mac mini file server for sharing (and therefore creating one item that needs backup). They're in the refurb store right now for $850.
