    I want to backup Keynote presentation. In case of computer failure, I can still give the presentation using another computer (Mac or PC undetermined). Could you please let me know the best way to do this? I saved the presentation as QuickTime, PowerPoint, PDF, Flash and HTML formats. However, none of these format can handle the original hyperlinks between the slides correctly. Exporting to PowerPoint format even degraded the image quality. I am using Keynote'08. There are lots of photos and videos in my presentation. Under Performance->General, I have already checked all four boxes under the field Save. Thanks.

    I find the easiest way to backup individual important files is to send them in an email to an account I can reach via the Web. I have a Yahoo account just for this purpose, and I made an automator workflow, where I drop the file, it gets ZIPped, emailed, then the archive is put in the trash. Pretty sweet.

    Sounds like you've got a pretty big file; Yahoo won't mind.

    All you'll need is an internet connection wherever you're giving the presentation. And if you want a backup to the backup, save it to a USB thumb drive.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Do you know how to fix the hyperlinks-got-messed-up problem? In case I need to make the presentation using a PC, I need to export it to other formats.

    Sorry, no. Is there a chance that's a feature unique to Keynote? Is there a way to create an alternative version of your presentation that doesn't use hyperlinks?
