Yours sincerely, Teddy, a new fan! — Teddy Comments: 2 Responses to “iPod 30GB as Time Machine Backup” Gary Rosenzweig 10/14/09 @ 12:09 pm I suppose you could, if you really wanted to. But I wouldn’t recommend it. An iPod is much more expensive than a small hard drive. Heck, you can get a 1TB drive for much less than a 30GB iPod. Plus, you are assuming that you will only have 10GB of stuff to back up — that can easily grow to much more. Teddy 10/15/09 @ 1:31 pm I mean third generation iPod… Battery’s dead! Comments Closed.
