I am a backup freak, i never lost any important data because i backup all the time. I just upgraded to Leopard and i am using a 1TB WD hard drive, since hard drives do fail all the time how can i backup my backup?

There is a folder named "Backups.backupdb", should i just drag that onto another hard drive and be done?

Thanks in advance.

seems quite unlikely 2 HD would go at the same time, if anything, 1 back up and an offsite backup would be better, in case of say a fire or robbery etc.

Very true, i will backup the time machine backup every few days offsite but i would like to know if i just should drag that one file or are there more files i should backup to get an up to date time machine backup.

One other way that you could try it, is if you are a .mac member, download the backup application, and set it to backup the dbbackup file. I have not tried it, but give that a try.
