    I just bought an Iomega ego 500gb mac edition external hard drive. It comes with a protection suite which includes EMC retrospect express and Iomega quikprotect. They don't sound like they will do anything different than what time machine already does, so I'm wondering if I should install them or not? I don't want a bunch of software competing for the same job and working in the background. Any advice would be appreciated...

    Has Time Machine been working for you? If so why wouldn't you just stick with it.
