    Just a quickie, not sure if anyone knows. Does timemachine only back up your OS drive? I have an OS drive and 3 separate TB drives. That id like to back up too.

    Would time back up the whole computer or would it just back up the OS drive?

    I've got mine backing up the OS and the attached drive where all of my data is stored (I'm temporarily on a 13" MBP with 128 SSD) and it does just fine.

    Cheers guy this info is very helpful. I have it running on my iMac now so for me its only backing up my OS drive which is my 1TB. But recently built up an awesome little hackintosh. Which will eventually have a drive set up like this

    disk0: 120SSD - OSx
    disk1: 1TB - Movies
    disk2: 1TB - Music & TV
    disk3: 1TB - User Data
    disk4: 4TB - Time Machine

    I will back up my iMac to a WD passbook, and my dad backs up to the server. So hopefully 4TB for the time machine drive would be ideal

    You have to get into a hot tub with 3 other guys, drink some booze till you pass out! Then see if you are teleported back in time.

    If you see neon ski suits and funky hair cuts it has worked. If you dont continue drinking
