Back me up!
#1
I'm currently researching the best method for backing up my Mac, which I haven't done since buying it earlier this year. It does have Time Machine installed, but I've recently learned that TM isn't bootable in case of a system crash and have been pointed to programs such as SuperDuper! and Carbon Copy Cloner.

On my old PC, I only ever worried about backing up my data - photos, docs, spreadsheets, etc, not the whole hard drive. Flash drives are sufficient for that, but not for a full system back up, so I'll be out shopping around for an external hard drive today.

What is your preferred method of backing up your hard drive?

We use an external hard-drive. We own a PC, but I understand these work for either.

Yeppers, they can be reformatted for Mac. I finally settled on one after spending the better part of Sunday morning doing research online. So much information out there, and of course, everyone has their preferences... :bg:

If the one I bought ends up working out, I'll get a second.
