The search mechanism isn't very good. I searched: backup iphoto pictures tiger and got nothing. So How do I do it? I know that iphoto and itunes likes to be in control of organizing files and file locations. I need to take my MBP in to shop since I have the dreaded keyboard and trackpad freezing problem that got progressively work and now will not come back. (currently using a usb keyboard and usb mouse) So can I just drag the "pictures" folder to my EHD? and can I do the same with the "music folder?" will that adequately back up both iphoto and itunes in case they replace my computer?
