I’ve read the reviews and now I’m afraid to purchase a “My Book Studio 1 TB External Firewire 800/400” for Mac.
I do not have Time Machine because I still have OS X 4.11 (Tiger). The Apple store suggested I get the older Leopard for my Mac which has Time Machine to help with transfering files. After reading the reviews on line here, I’m afraid to purchase the above external Drive. I have never done a back-up on my Mac and it’s 4.5 yrs. old now and I think I’m walking on ice!
