  • I use it for Time Machine backups only. There is an option for encryption but I have not used it yet.

  • I looked at the response from Paul H from Norwalk and am confused because today LaCie is telling me that the drive won't backup from Time Machine that only Mirroring will work. I cannot get Time Machine to backup to the drive but Paul said he does do so. Plus, I bought the drive from Apple and why would Apple sell a drive that won't work with Time Machine??
