One way to help back up personalized system files
Authored by: ccase on Mar 29, '07 12:27:26PM

Just back up the whole of /etc (/private/etc) when you back up your home directory. Mine is only 3 MB. Then you won't have any worries about forgetting a file, or about it becoming unlinked from your backed up version when you edit the original.

If you only want to back up one directory, make a link from your home to /etc and make sure your backup tool copies the contents of /etc.
