Hey all, I'd love some help if any of you can spare the time, essentially I need to back up all of my data- I don't want to use an automated tool like Time Machine, I just want to stick all my stuff on an external drive so I can retrieve it after formatting. What I've done so far is simply make a copy of my home folder on the external drive and I've also separately exported all of my contacts and stuff from their relevant apps and put them in there too. My main worry is that I'll be hit in the face with some sort of permissions or authorisation errors when i copy this stuff back after formatting. What to do? Thanks, Shoot.
