    I have recently bought a USB hard drive to back up all my data, mainly my iTunes library. I am currently using an evaluation copy of Personal Backup X4 from Intego software.

    This will be a little on the expensive side when I come to buying it, so I was wondering if anyone knew of better / cheaper (less than £47) backup software?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    How about something like iBackup...is that powerful enough for your needs?

    I use iBackup as well. Sure it's not cloning your drive but it works fine for getting all of my personal files and OS X settings. Not like my ENTIRE Library folder is worth backing up anyways.

    backup (part of .Mac) is a very powerful and integrated program to backup stuff. it is made by apple, integrates perfectly in terms of where you want to backup, what you want to backup, and most of all when (i.e. automatic backups daily)

    keep it in mind
