Just discovered this forum, and am so glad the COW has created it.

As for a lower-budget solution: if you have a fast network & an old (SCSI-capable) PC lying around, you can get a far-less-expensive LTO drive, add it to the PC, hook into your Mac via the network, and you're done - for a fraction of the price of the "right way to do it." Mine is an HP LTO3 external drive, current cost about $2k (US).

I would love to have the Cache-A, LTO5, and hope to have it some day. But if I had the choice between no LTO backup and LTO3, I'd take the LTO3.

Good luck. Those hard drives are NOT an archive, just a disappointment waiting to happen.
