    I'm backing up my external drive. But i want to back it up to another external. ATM i'm cloning it as there is a lot of information on it. But after that is done I want the backup to just reflect the changes that are made on the original. waht is the best way to do this?

    you can use SuperDuper! (licensed) to do this. for the first backup do an "erase and copy" which formats your second external and then clones the data from the first external to the second. then after that you can use "smart update" which only copies the changes. i would do an erase and copy first :) as i dont know if smart update will work with an already backed up external whether it be manually or another third party cloner :confused:.
