hi there everybody! i am sure, you guys have at least read or heard about somebody losing their files because of one reason or another, because they did not backup their data. i own a mac (duh!) and i just seem to feel, that nothing can hurt my mac. i have a 120 gb firewire drive (external) with important files (pix, sound, pdfs, whatever). i would like to know, how would one backup a large drive? the option of buying a second drive is out of the question (at the moment). is there a applescript that lets me read and modify files (playing sound files or transferring one file from one folder to another) but not delete them unless i type in the admin password? thanks!!
