I use TimeMachine on a TimeCapsule for my backups.
I also have all my ITunes Media on a different external drive as it is too large to keep on my MacBook Harddrive.
The external drive with my Media is attached to the TimeCapsule so I can access it wirelessly. This works great and I avoid the hassle of plugging an external disk in and out of my MacBook and have no cable clutter on my desk. I am quite happy with this solution.
But: how do I backup this external drive? It appears not to be included in the normal TimeMachine backup. I guess I could create a copy of the drive on the TimeCapsule disk, but as it is 100 G, this will take long and I would have to do it manually each time. Any better way?
Thanks – your advice is really helpful.
