I have just received my new Studio II with 2 1TB drives. But after reading through the info I realized I did not know what I was doing and maybe bought the wrong product.
I bought the external drive hoping to be able to backup section of 2 different computer, my desktop and my laptop. Can I attach the Studio II to the Desktop and then share it with the Laptop through the desktop?
I read through the raid array info. The raid 0 does not sound as it will work for backups because if one of the two drives fail the whole array is ruined. Now I believe that raid 1 would work for backups but cuts capacity in half and slows things down. Can I not use a raid of anykind, have the full 2TB capacity? Say backup one computer to drive A and the other to drive B. Will the automatic backup work without a raid being set up?
The laptop will not be attached all the time - so would the automatic backup work at all - like say backing everything up as needed when I reconnect?
Lots of questions.
Would appreciate any help you could give.
