    I'm looking for a backup program that I can just tell it to backup my entire hard drive to multiple cd's except for my mp3 folder and my tv folder. I checked out iBackup and SuperDuper, but neither of these will do this as far as I can see. They only have a limited number of presets that are not configurable. I just want to check off "backup entire drive" and then check off "except the folders ..." and select my folders to exclude. Anyone know a program that'll do this?

    p.s. Yes, I searched the forums already and did not find an answer to this question.

    Silverkeeper is free and has an exclusions capability with which you can omit specific files or entire folders. You can find Silverkeeper on the LaCie web page or at silverkeeper.com.

    But wait there's more! SK will make a bootable backup and can be scheduled to run for automated backups, waking the computer from sleep.

    It has on the ones I've purchased. Also, it's available for free download.

    Oh so CLOSE! That would be exactly what I want except it doesn't work for spanning multiple cd-r, at least as far as I can see. So close, yet so far.

    Not preinstalled on two LaCie drives of mine, but on an accompanying cd with the hard drives, or freely downloadable.
