    Sorry, I realise this is a stupid question but...

    I want to back up every Word document I have. Unfortunately, they aren't really sorted in any way, they're a little scattered over my harddrive. Is there any way to create a folder where all Word documents are put into automatically?

    Secondly, to back things up, you save it on a disk right? To do this, I insert a blank disc, hit "Open in Finder", and drag the folders I want into the disk?

    Thanks

    If you're on Tiger, create a New Smart Folder, and let Finder search for all your Word documents. For the second part, yeah, just insert a blank CD or DVD-R and drag your files into it. It'll copy your documents over, and then you can select Burn from Finder.
