    Hello, I was wondering if there was any way to use a usb stick as a backup drive for my macbook, I don't have a lot of stuff on my laptop and would have plenty of space using a 32 GB pen drive. Thanks in advance for the help.

    If you use Time Machine, it probably won't work well. Time Machine is taking snapshots of your hard drive, and while you may not have a lot of data, the hard drive will have a bunch of gbs worth of stuff.
