  1. Hi, I have just purchased a 4TB (2x 2TB) WD Thunderbolt drive. I plan to move my iTunes library (approx 300GB) from the internal HD of my Mac Mini (2011). I also have a 1TB G-Drive (FW) that I have been using for time machine back-up. I am not very computer literate, and would be very grateful for some advice on how to set up and configure my system. What would the most useful configuration of the WD drives be? - RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD? I will only be using it for music, so I guess the extra speed (a reduced capacity) of RAID 0 is unnecessary. - RAID 1 vs JBOD. Would it be possible to use one of the WD drives in JBOD configuration for time machine back-ups without interfering with the performance of the system for listening to music stored on the other drive? - should I be using carbon copy closer or something similar? - I feel I should have some sort of offsite back-up. Would I be best to use my 1TB FW G-Drive for occasional back-ups of my music which could then be kept "off-site" in between back-ups. Or, use an online storage provider? My current preference is to use the 4TB WD HDD in RAID 1 set-up, and continue to use the G-Drive for Time Machine back-ups of my Mac Mini internal HDD. I would then perhaps look at using another HDD for regular back-ups of my music files, or use online storage for this. I would be hugely appreciative of anyone's thoughts or advice on this. Best Regards, Rich
