I want to somehow [maybe with Automator] back up certain folders [docs, music, vids, etc]on my HD to my external HD on a daily basis and have it done automatically. I've had a play around with Automator, but it kinda confuses me [I'm fairly new to OSX]! Any ideas? Also, I tend to format my HD regularly [well I did with my PC]. Is there any way to back up all my iCal events, address book and e-mails + folders? Not necessarily automatically though. Cheers RJ.
