Okay, so let me explain my background before I get to what I am looking to do. I recently accepted a job at a company that would allow me enough money to replace the PowerMac Dual 2.0 tower with a nice new iMac 24", AND get that nice MBP that I have been need/wanting for a while. I have worked as a freelance commercial director and photographer for several years and still use Aperture for much of the photography work I do on the side. All told I probably have 750 GB of information that I want to back up currently. That said, I am looking at turning for a nice simple way to backup all this information in a streamlined way. I want to eliminate the (literally) SIX HDs that I have that are all running through hubs to my mac. They are successfully backing up my info, but I want to get something that can do it automatically so I can just tell it to update "Photos" folder every Sunday night at 1.00am and it will. I am also looking for a system that I can store a HD remotely (at my parents house across town) or at my friend's so that I have a save backup that is away from the rest of the mess. I am fairly tech savy, but don't want to worry with running a bunch of cables and routers and such. I looked at a DROBO but saw the reviews on NewEgg were not so good. Any ideas? In a nutshell, I am looking for a redundant backup drive to connect to my new computer (iMac) and, if possible, something I can access over the internet so that I can have a backup that is safe from a break-in or house fire. Also, is there a way that I could connect said local drive to a network so that I could access files from my MBP if the drive is connected to the iMac on the other side of the house? Lazy I know, but sometimes it helps.
