Manage your iTunes library
Posted 13 June 2008 - 06:40 AM
I do have a back up issue that I am looking for advice on. I have read all the posts and my situation is not covered. I was excited to read in your article that iTunes has incremental back up, but I am now realizing that the back up is limited to removable media only.
I have recently purchased Time Capsule to back up my Macs. But my iTunes data (30GBs) in on an external drive and Time Machine will not perform incremental backups of the data because the drive is being shared via USB off the Time Capsule (go figure).
So right now I am waiting appx 6 hours for a manual copy of my iTunes data from the shared external HD to the Time Capsule's drive.
If Apple won't lift the limitation on iTunes back up going to devices other than (very limited) optical storage devices, then how can I easily perform incremental backups of my iTunes data (preferrably automatically and behind the scenes)?
Note I am a home user and do not want to go spending hundreds of dollars on 3rd party backup software after I just invested $600+ in Apple's Time Machine (OS upgrade) and a 1 terabyte Time Capsule.
