My iMac setup:
- Internal 250 GB SSD: System, most apps, and home folder. ~/Music and ~/Movies folders are symlinked to the external drive.
- 1st external (USB 3) 4 TB HD: Time Machine Backup of the SSD, Music, Movies, lesser-used Apps, and whatever other large data I need to store.
- 2nd external (USB 3) 4 TB HD: Alternate Time Machine backup of the SSD, and straight rsync backup of the 1st external drive.
By the way, Apple is not breaking up iTunes or shutting down the iTunes Store. They are only adding separate Apple TV+ and Apple Music clients to the Mac, for subscribers of those services. The only likely change to iTunes will be the removal of Podcasts, which hasn't been able to properly sync with iOS for years.
