One-step backup and burn to CD/DVD
Authored by: cclifton on May 20, '04 01:23:09PM

Backup will make backups to iDisk on .mac, to CDs (spanning backups across multiple CDs), and to other harddrives. My only gripe with Backup is that it is incredibly slow at times. I suspect this is because it is accessing .mac to verify membership status.

I use Backup to do daily backups of some important info to my iDisk. I use scripts triggered by cron, like others have posted in the past, to do weekly backups to a second internal harddrive. My daily and weekly backups require no user intervention at all.

Once a month I use Backup to burn CDs of my most recent weekly backups. The CDs go to a safe deposit box at the bank.
