    I know that experience is limited with Leopard until later this month, but is there going to be ANY reason to use the Backup program once Time Machine is out with Leopard? I have been trying to think of one and I can't...

    You can use .Mac's backup on DVD's.

    It will also still be nice to use .Mac backup to your iDisk because that backup is completely off-site. If your house burns down you'll be able to restore data you've backed up to your iDisk to the fancy new computer your insurance company buys to replace your melted one.

    OK thanks for the replys. Maybe I'll backup some of the really important files to the idisk for extra protection. I don't use DVDs for backup anymore but that is a feature I didn't consider.
