  2. Robust backup system for Mac using Apple Time Capsule and a standard USB external sub drive. System design provides removable drive for storage at off-site safe deposit box.

Additionly, I use BackBlaze as a redundant online backup system.  Total backup system provides three backups in three locations.  Sub drive image details soon…
