I have a mac pro that I use for personal photos, home movies, my music collection and schoolwork. I'm trying to devise a plan for making secure backups of this data. My current plan is to install hard drives in bays 3 and 4 (bay 2 is for a Boot Camp XP install) and make a RAID-1 array with OSX. I want to setup automatic scheduled backups of my media and documents to this RAID so that I don't have to do it manually. I am a .Mac subscriber so I could use Backup, but I have concerns over the way the data is stored. Has anyone done a restore off of a Backup archive? What I'm worried about is that some of the plans like 'Home Folder backup' or 'iLife backup' seem to combine everything in one file. So if I were to accidentally delete some photos or music, would I have to restore the entire Home Folder or collection of iLife files? Get what I mean? Maybe it would make sense to develop backup plans for each media type: photos, movies, music etc so that I could only restore the necessary type? I also have a registered copy of SuperDuper! that I could use in roughly the same way. Anyone have a compelling argument for either piece of software? Maybe I'm making this more complicated than it needs to be, but now that I have to wait until the Fall for Time Machine, I'm trying to devise the easiest and safest plan. Thanks for any input!
