    Hi

    Just double checking if backing up the 'user' folder will back up:

    addresses
    emails and folders in mail
    safari bookmarks
    ical events, birthdays, etc
    music, pics, docs, etc

    Thanks a lot.

    If you back up the user home folder...yes everything in that folder will be backed up..but you should also back up your apps by themselves just to be safe....backing up your home folder is huge unless you r backing up to an external HD or DVD.

    I'm not bothered about my apps as I can easily download them again.

    I've got an ext HD so it's not a problem backing up the user folder!

    Cheers for your help.
