    Critique my backup structure...

    So I believe this is what I'm looking at for the system I'm working on setting up with my dad. He runs Apple, I run Windows/Android. Does the setup below look reasonable? Are there any other backup/sync applications I should also be looking at?

    Is hyperbackup supposed to remove files created since the last backup upon a restore?

    I've been trying to get my photo storage organized better. I found a program that works well, except that I didn't use it correctly and so I ended up with multiples of my photos. No problem I figured, I had made sure to run a backup prior to running the organization software on 12/1. When I...
