help with a network Hard disk

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


My mum needs a hard disk for backing up via time machine. I thought id get a network hard disk, making it available to both macs in the house. Firstly, would this be a straight forward process for me to set up and secondly would she be able to switch the HD on and off without having to reconfigure Time Machines backing up schedule.


Oh and thirdly, anyone got any suggestions for the actual device, i do like the Time Capsule, its just a little pricy for me.

I usually recommend an airport extreme with an external usb drive hanging off it. It's easy to set up and can survive people turning it off (although I don't understand why you would want to, if you're turning it off and on every time you want to use it, you might as well get a normal external and be done with it).
