Plug 3 TB external Seagate into hackintosh?

That would be far cheaper then buying a two bay enclosure and two NAS drives. But no RAID 1, and the drive is NTFS, might need to buy a driver to use it in OS X.

20 bucks is still cheaper then an enclosure and two drives.

Hackintosh is turning on, and you can get a free ten day trial. Sold.

But why the fuck do I need a NAS anyways?

Could move Twonky to my hackintosh, then desktop doesn’t need to be on to stream.

And it works. But I can’t use Time Machine with a NTFS formatted drive. Might have to buy Carbon Copy Cloner finally.

The backup disk is not in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format, which is required.

No discount for Carbon Copy Cloner. Yes I’m to cheap to pay 40 bucks for it. I already have to buy Paragon NTFS. Uninstalled Carbon Copy Cloner. Will install the SuperDuper trial. Maybe I’ll buy it in a couple months. Wait, you can use disk utility for free. Disk Utility is a pain in the ass way to make backups though.

And Super Duper doesn’t work either. You have to backup to an image file, but it won’t do it.

I think it has something to do with the Paragon NTFS driver.

Saved it to the internal drive. If there’s enough space, I might be able to copy the image to my external drive and then use it.

And I should go to bed.

And it works now. Stopped it, copied the disk image to external drive. Mounted the image, and selected it to backup to in Super Duper. Maybe I should buy a Western Digital 6 TB drive for 300 bucks.
