Hi - I am trying to decide upon a backup strategy and after reading posts here and some other articles I have a couple questions. I have a 250 gb external drive. I plan to use superduper to make clones. My powerbook drive is 80 gigs. Some suggest doing this daily, weekly, and monthly. I don't have the space for that and also, want to be able to do backups with some kind of archiving. So should I partition my external into two 80gb partitons and the remainder to archive and then do: daily and weekly clones using superduper and another application to "backup" my user files? Or, make one 80gb partition for cloning and do that weekly or daily? and then use the remaining space to backup user files daily. From reading, it seems that superduper is great for making a clone. but not for not incremental backups. I have dotmac backup, but have read about some problems with restoring. also, because there is no way to archive the incremental backups it does, it will eventually fill the disc. i was thinking of using synk or ibackup for this purpose (i do use dotmac to backup my docs and prefs to my idisk each night). So really, should I be doing both a daily and weekly clone or is one sufficient and then also do incremental backups of basically my home folder. And any suggestions on software to use for incremental backups? thanks foir the help.
