Comments on: Backups.

Sounds like some spec changed in one of the devices. My setup is still working very well.

If possible I would exchange the iomega — otherwise use it as a secondary or sell it to a friend.

I recently upgraded to the newest airport extreme (looks identical to the one pictured above) and am running the latest firmware 7.4.2, and I too have the Iomega Prestige 1TB drive for backup, however, my airport refuses to recognize the drive. It seems others are having this issue as well (http://store.apple.com/us/product/TU111ZM/A), do you have any insight as to what the issue could be? I've tried reformatting the drive in mac extended to no avail. I've also done the obvious like restarting/resetting the airport, calling Apple, restarting the drive… Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

But I don't think you can do parallel backups with Time Machine.

Here's a guy who is using two drives with Time Machine but he keeps one off site at all times:

Did you mention that?
