    This might sound like a silly question, but my Mac has been buggy lately, and suddenly I've become paranoid. I feel the need to backup my files *right now*.

    But how?

    I have an external Firewire HDD [320GB] that has plenty of space, but due to the whole Mac/PC format incompatibility BS, I formatted it as NTFS [I have plenty of files over 4GB], and shared it over my network.

    Now, CarbonCopy Cloner won't do anything since its no longer a local drive. So how am I supposed to make a disk image of my startup HDD?

    Any ideas?, Thanks.

    Try SuperDuper and backup to an HFS partition (created with Disk Utility) on the external is my first thought...
