    I bought leopard the other day and want to do an install and erase. My Macbook is about a year old and I have never backuped any of the data. I used to be a PC user and backuped files simply by copying and pasting a copy on an external hard drive. This seems to work with my documents on mac too. How do I backup my photos and music? Everything is on iPhoto and iTunes right now.

    Appreciate that help! :)

    To back up iTunes you can simply copy and paste in external HD the following folder...

    Macintosh HD/users/your user folder/music/itunes

    Copy all files in the itunes folder to an external HD...
