My three year old 27inch I Mac has been called in for a replacement hard drive apparently there was a faulty batch . So I need to back up my files .
I use a WD hard drive with time machine but have been told that TM wont back up photoshop or clone the whole built in drive .
I intend to use carbon copy to clone every thing and then transfer it back on to the new built in drive from an external drive .
My question is which would be the best drive for my purpose it would need to be 3TB and easy to use , i intend to back up every couple of weeks and store it away from the computer , and re boot from it in case of failure , i did read some where that WD would,n,t be suitable for what i wanted .
Any help would be welcome , but please keep it straight forward as i am not at all tech savvy
