I got some great advice on this board before when I was contemplating switching back to Mac and when I saw a "new" refurb Mini (with 120GB HD) in the Apple store I jumped on it! I'm very excited to be back on a Mac but I need a little help with my setup. What I want to do: Be able to access my documents from my girlfriends macbook on my home network and possibility access those files over the internet. Also, back up everything with Time Machine. Here's what I'm thinking I need to/will do: 1. Buy an external 1TB hard drive for Time Machine 2. Buy another external HD (500GB - 1TB) to use to hold all of my docs (music, movies and other documents) 3. Plug both into my Airport Extreme (I'm picking up tomorrow) using a USB hub and use the Airport disk utility to set up one external hard drive for sharing and one for Time Machine. My questions: 1. Will this setup work? Meaning can I attach two hard drives to the Airport Extreme and assign them each a different function? 2. Is this the best setup for what I want to do? I can also upgrade the size of the internal hard drive in the Mini or attach an external hard drive directly to the Mini but then can I share these files easily over the network and access from the internet like I can with the Airport disk utility? I'm not a "power user" and am not so much worried about slower access speeds via USB on the Airport vs Firewire or Esata. 3. Can I do the same basic setup with an Airport Express instead of an Airport Extreme and save myself about $100? 4. Will Time Machine allow me to backup multiple hard drives onto one hard drive? The internal hard drive which will probably hold my applications and the external which will hold docs. Thanks for the helping out a noob!
