I had to face a ransomware attack a couple of years ago: both the file server and the backup unit, which was a standard NAS, were completely defeated – no hope to retrieve anything from either unit. The Syneto unit that was sitting on the same network got under fire too - but only the last snapshot was accessible via the network, so it was the only one that got corrupted.
I've successfully restored the previous snapshot in less than 15 minutes (I keep 24 daily snapshots on this machine) and got everything back.... it was really a life saver.
Since then I rely on a three-level backup: a standard Time Machine on a thunderbolt drive, an encrypted backup via Carbon Copy on the Syneto unit and the icloud stuff on another level. Of course the management of the above is not the simplest, but it seems a fine cover...

Who really knows you just take your best guess and go with it. I would ask my 3 year old grandson but he's a few states over right now. I could get as good of advice from him as I any of the "Experts".MikeThanks for the timely advice. I did give him a call just after he finished his morning nap. He suggested I hold off for a another month for the smoke to clear.Mike
Right now I have the 2015 iPad pro 12.9. Used mostly for content consumption it didn't live up to my expectations as a effective laptop replacement. Like you I do a lot of photography with a 46MP sensor camera. Right now I'm in South TX for a 4 day shoot. I will be ordering a 12.9" 1TB model when I get back. My expectation is use LR on the iPad keeping one copy on the iPad, exporting a copy to a 2TB SSD for backup. Replacing my laptop on the road. It will be a more awkward workflow, but I won't have to be dragging around the MacBook Pro + all the required paraphernalia. If it works out I'll be retiring my laptop. Using the ipad on the road, and desktop at home.MIke
