I have a mac mini that I purchased about a year ago, the cheapest one that's dual core with 500GB, and I use it as a media machine. It works perfect. I have it plugged into my receiver via HDMI then from the receiver to a 60" 4k tv. I also have a 4TB external enclosed HD that plugs into the back of the mac that is completely empty. Is there a way to set things up so that I can completely backup my iphone and macbook pro when at home and connected to the wifi? Is it also possible to make the mac mini have a network drive that I can access from the internet? I fly for a living and am always on the road. I'd like to be able to work on documents and what not by connecting from my macbook but storing everything there for redundancy. Just curious. Thanks!
