Hi - I am an old guy struggling with this whole concept of backup strategies. Basically, I have one 1TB drive on my computer where I store my seldom changed data. I bought two 2TB MyBook Live’s and put one on the network, set the software to backup the drive where I store my data. My plan was to swap the second My Book Live onto the network and set it up exactly like the first drive. I planned to swap these drives about every two weeks and to keep the offline drive in a fire-resistant safe outside the house.
Will this work or is there something else I need to do with the backup software. When I swap in the offline drive, will the software recognize that the backup is two weeks old?
Is there a better way?
Thanks in advance - Tom
