My iMac is acting up. Probably due to the fusion drive option I took back in the day. And the amount of discrete files in my Dropbox Account is also becoming a problem it seems.
Anyways, to prepare for an iMac-upgrade where I’ll likely end up with less internal Storage, and to simply have a better setup I’m looking at external desktop Storage.
I have an Apollo Duo 2, but it’s not working that well to be honest - and even if it did it would not be covered by my Backblaze Backup.
I’ve looked at a “LaCie d2 10 TB Thunderbolt 3”.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with one of these or something similar?
The primary things I would like to have covered:
That Backblaze will cover it
That it’s workable to actually transfer and work on data on the disk from my iMac
Ideally I would like it to be possible to have it connected to my iMac all the time, but if needed connect my MacBook Pro without it being disconnected from the iMac. Is this even possible? (The D2 above has the ports at least.)
I am more than open to other suggestions for a drive if there are better ones to look at.
Thanks for any clarifications!
Edit: Added an important “not” in the Duo paragraph.
