    My parents have a PC and a Mac, and they really need to back them up as they contain business files and that's quite important :D

    What would be the easiest way to achieve this? Bare in mind that it needs to be really simple, the Mac is a Mac Mini. Both machines have CDRWs, NOT DVD RW's. Both machines have 40gb HDDs.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks

    What kind of back up are you referring?

    Complete HD as in an image or just their files?

    Definitely get an external HD of just over 80GB...partition the drive (using Disk utility when connected to the mac) with one part Mac partitioned and the other PC partitioned. Use SuperDuper to copy the mac HD to the mac partition and backup the windows side onto the windows partition...
