2. I read somewhere that one should never store ordinary files on the same disk as a Time Machine backup. Is this correct? What is the risk?LorenI can perhaps answer a couple of Loren's questions.I have a 750 GB external USB-2 drive running through a powered USB hub. This hard drive had about 90 Gbits of info on it (not Time Machine info) from a previous computer. (Both computers run Snow Leopard) I hooked it up to a my current computer to use for Time Machine. The first 4GB of Time Machine backup loaded in 11 minutes which is about a third of a GB per minute. Things sped up quickly and I had 100 GB of Time Machine completed in 90 minutes which is a bit over 1.1 GB/minute. The total TM load totaled 200 GB, but I did not time the balance of the load.All of the original data from the previous computer is still on the USB drive as well as the Time Machine info.Ted
