I have 2 x 1 TB drive that I use interchangeably. 1 holds Video and the other Photos. I only have 1 connected when I'm working (using Premiere or Lightroom). I have a 2 TB NAS for making redundant copy of the other 2 drives.So far I've been doing the copying manually.
I'm considering of using Time Machine to make proper backup sets (though I'm always only interested in the latest set). I know that I can set Time Machine to backup to NAS over the network and include any external drives connected to the mac at the time.
QUestion now is:
- Will Time Machine "craps out" if it can't find the external drive?
- Does Time Machine handle backing up the external drives - one at a time - only when it's connected - without thinking the files/volume had been deleted?
