I’ve got my Mac mini hooked up to my TV for viewing TV shows bought on iTunes.
I’ve currently got all the TV shows stored on one 1TB LaCie external hard drive. I’m a bit nervous about just having one copy of all these purchases.
I might just end up buying another external drive and scheduling a backup, but I’m also thinking about replacing the external drive with a Drobo, to give me a bit of defence against data loss from individual hard drives dying.
If I go down the Drobo route, what sort of hard drives should I be looking to put in the Drobo to avoid the read speed being a bottleneck for playing video?
