    Or can I only drag and drop files? If I had to drag and drop, to back up my Aperture library, would I just drag the entire 'Aperture Library' file itself or would I have to go in and transfer the pictures themselves? I'm hoping there's a way I can take a time machine backup and them move it to a flash drive.

    I guess you could use Time Machine to back up to a flash drive if the flash drive was large enough or your HDD was small enough.
