It works on my Mac Studio, so I'd say yes. It's labelling as being Mac-compatible

I don't know, but this item has terrible reviews.

Your comment cannot be blank.

CDs are safer than the cloud
Last two times I've ordered from Target and the item was actually out of stock, they offered to ship it for free. YMMV.

Quote from Ya_wumpus :
https://community.linuxmint.com/s...w/safecopy [linuxmint.com]

Safecopy is the friend of anyone with iffy cds and is comfortable with the Linux command line. It will recover anything that can be recovered from a CD that is stored in less than "super clean environment" (like stuffed back on a spindle with the rest of the written CDs).

In reality, I'd recommend two (duplicate) external HDDs as a replacement, preferably with some sort of PAR2 data on each. Of course, I managed to have an issue with a (super slickdeal) 6TB external drive and safecopy couldn't recover 32MB of space (.005% of the data, but that drive is shot).

Cloud: should be good as long as you keep paying and the company feels like staying in business. When they decide to shutdown, expect a month's warning at best. Don't expect to be able to transfer the data anywhere. Also hope you don't have data caps if you want to download.

Storing at home (or perhaps an offsite location). Pay all at once, no ongoing fees (except for possibly storage). No guarantee your data is valid (few people can afford a spare server to test their backup data, although you probably are storing in on a windows filesystem, so can check that. I had no idea my 6TB HDD had any data missing). Vastly easier to restore data (unless you are using CDs/DVDs/Bluray, then expect to get tired swapping discs).
Most files on a PC can be replaced/repliucated end of the day. the thing i tell people is... your photos and projects, ESPECIALLY your photos. invest in any cloud storage you can, because once those photos are gone, they are GONE

Not necessarily, they degrade over time, you'd essentially would have to keep backups of backups and store them in a super clean environment. To top it off are easily lost in natural disasters.
What you are talking hardly ever happens and has never happened to me.

Some reviews say it's not compatible with Monterey.
Interesting. I'm running Monterey and it works fine. I wonder what issues they were having

But, then you are at the mercy of other companies.

Don't count on just one storage medium.

Case in point: "Some Google Photos users finding that old images have been 'corrupted'"

Dont get your point really. Doesnt matter what options you go. Theres built in risk.
You can stay hard copies, and just hope nothing happens. You can go disc and hope they dont degrade or something happens to them, you can go cloud and hope nothing happens to that company. You can build a server and hope it never goes down.
