    I'm looking for some decent backup software to use at work. I've heard about the usual recommendations: SuperDuper, Carbon Copy Cloner, and SilverKeeper.

    However what I really need is incremental updates (only backing up the stuff thats changed), over two folders. Let me explain that: Were running 10.2.8 server, and from September I shall be splitting the Users folder over two internal hard drives. We have one giant external backup drive which I want to use each night to make a backup of students work. Most applications seem to support only copying new and modified files, but do they support more than one folder to copy?

    Any advice would be appreciated. I cant imagine full manual backups each night does the external drive any good.

    I'm also looking for good and easy-to-use backup software for business data, only, but from a free-standing (not networked) iMac G4 (OS 10.2) to an external hard drive. So, maybe the people who give you advice can give it to me, too.

    Thanks.
