    ok here's my situation...

    I have a 10 gig external firewire hd with which I store all of my mp3's & photography...

    in my TiBook I have a 30 gig hd partitioned into 10 gig (X) & a 20 gig (9)...

    up to this point I've been using the 10 gig external for file storage...but I want to find a tool that will allow me to have an automatic backup of my files from my 10 gig to my 20 gig partition...so I always have a real "backup" of my files...

    any suggestions? freeware preferebly...thanks in advance! :p

    I would have recommended cp -Rp /10gigpartition /whereever/on/the/20/gig/partition/you/want/it/to/go, but then I found out the OS X cp doesn't preserve resource forks!

    I say that's a good thing! The less resource forks the better! Come on, everybody! Join my campaign to Kill The Resource Fork!!
