Hi all, I just wanted to make sure my backup method is okay. Basically I don't really know how to do the big major backups like system etc. and I don't trust Time Machine after hearing pretty negative comments on it. So Instead, I hooked up my MacBook to a new HD that I'd just bought, and I backed up my important stuff, Documents, Music, Pictures, Movies, Widgets, applications. Just simply dragged it to the external HD. I'm wondering if this is okay? Say for example I get a new MacBook and I send all this date over as it is will it be okay? What I'm concerned about most are the applications since I just simply dragged my whole applications folder to the External HD.
