The RAID array is all set up and working :+1: I had some trouble getting macOS Time Machine to behave, but figured it out eventually. Two drives -> RAID 1 array -> Encrypted APFS format -> two APFS volumes (one for each computer to use as a TM backup destination).
The initial backup, over wifi, took a few days 😅 But it did finish, and incremental backups are quick!
@ashfurrow For future reference, time machine backups run on a very low QoS priority to avoid hogging the CPU. You can temporarily increase the priority by running this command:
sudo sysctl debug.lowpri_throttle_enabled=0
Run again with enabled=1 to revert it to normal speeds later (this not only affects time machine so could have unknown side effects on other processes, probably nothing serious tho)
