I’m running 3 Macs with OS 10.4.10, 10.5.6 and 10.6.
I need to keep all the computers running different operating systems, but also need to allow them all access to the same files and folders.
Prior to getting my Drobo and DroboShare this week I’ve been using Carbon Copy Cloner to make bootable back ups of my Macs on external drives; and then swapping them around to share information, or boot old operating systems up on different computers.
I tried to do the same today using CCC, but am now only given the option of making disk images on the Drobo (not clones).
I’m really not into having disk images, as I’d then have to mount my back up files to read them, and I was hoping to create a network with this DroboShare, so that I could centralise all my data, and then work on them from the various computers, while also having bootable clones of the various computers in case of failure.
This is my first attempt to create a network, and realise I may be making some fundamental mistakes; but if anyone could offer me some advice or maybe recommend some Drobo Aps that could make bootable clones of my drives, and centralise all the data without turning them into disk images, that would be a great help.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
