    To those of you with Leopard and who use TM I was wondering what you call your backup disk, eg Backup, Time Machine etc etc

    Mine is called "Media". Because it has all my iTunes stuff on it. I need to reconfigure my hard drives...

    I gave mine the Time Machine icon and called it time machine. I partitioned my 1TB Western Digital External box into 800 and 200GB partitions. The 200 is my Time Machine partition. I just wish there was a way to launch Time Machine by double clicking the drive's icon. I don't like having a ton of icons in the dock either.

    Is there a way to do it with folder actions? Not sure if you can apply a folder action to a drive though.

    Also on the topic of HD names, what do you call your internal HD?
    Is it named the standard 'Macintosh HD' or has it been Christened otherwise?

    Mine is called Blue because when I got it I was asked to give it a name and i looked at it. It has a big blue ring around the power button so I named it that.

    My HD is called Hard Disk.

    But in a few days when I am done migrating files I will take them off my desktop so it wont really matter what they are called.

    Another Tardis

    I know that technically it should have been TARDIS, but that just looks too much like a FAT disk... ;)
