Diane Posted March 22, 2016 Share Posted March 22, 2016 Hi Brian, Thanks for all the helpful advice. I have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014), 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, with 1 TB flash storage that is nearly full because I have way too many photos (and raw files). I want to get two external drives -- one for time machine and one for all my photos. I have to admit that I've never backed-up with Time Machine, but I do back up to Crashplan. But, I am ready to commit to doing better with my backing up... I'm going to want to have the time machine external drive back up my computer's hard drive and the new external with photos. I've seen that you like the G-Drives. I am thinking about getting a 1 TB external for my photos. Is this G-Drive that is exclusive to Apple (http://www.apple.com/shop/product/HF113ZM/B/g-technology-1tb-g-drive-mobile-portable-hard-drive-usb-30) the same as the one you recommended http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=cart_accessories&A=details&Q=&sku=1009518&is=REG&bundleId=1009518REG (other than the color)? For the external for Time Machine, does the G-Drive with 3 TB make sense? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1024612-REG/g_technology_0g03124_g_drive_3tb_7200_thunderbolt_usb3_sata3.html Thanks for your input. --Diane Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
