"For us mere mortals, they also have the perfect Time Machine Drive, the G-Safe. It simultaneously writes to two independent hard disk drives providing instant back up of your time machine as you save it. For instance, the G-Safe 500GB includes two 500GB drives and automatically puts one copy of everything you save to it on each drive."

"Of course, using two drives to mirror each other costs twice as much as two separate drives, but the added safety and peace of mind outweigh this – especially since a comparable system would have cost much more even recently."
