I have searched this topic and I know it has been cover a hundred times but I am now so confused on which type of external hard drives I should purchase for my Mac Mini which will be connected to my HTS. I plan on ripping my extensive DVD collection and storing them on a 2T (minimum) external hard drive. I will also have probably a 2T external hard drive for backing up my laptops and mini also. I can not decide which type of hard drive system I should go with and what set up makes the most sense. I will connect my hard drives via FW800 or eSATA. Also for those of you that store your DVD collection on hard drives how do you back up that hard drive? What do you guys suggest?
