    I'm talkin floppie disks here. Anyone else?:D

    ok ok...I mostly use DVDs and CDs still to back up data.

    I do have external HDDs (2.5TB worth) as well --- but I don't use fancy smancy stuff like Time Machine (I deleted that btw).

    I drag.....and drop......drag....and drop

    So simple :D

    You deleted Time Machine? Thought it too deep routed into the OS to deleted.

    I have do backup some static data to DVDs, i.e. Music + older files.

    However I keep regular harddrive backs of the entire system.

    well, deleted the .app & that was good enough I guess --- was just tired of seeing it in there.

    I back up important stuff the same way, however I do use Time Machine in case I should ever have to do a re-install. I've done too many "start from scratch" installs that I would rather just not have to deal with it anymore.
