    So I have a question that has been on my mind for some time now.
    What backup program is the best (please don't say Time machine).
    I'm looking for a backup app that can backup wirelessly and be able to make a backup that I can use for booting if my computer - god forbid it - crashes.

    Right now I'm using Superduper and I like it a lot but it does not support wireless backup.

    Thanks in advance!

    I use Retrospect to back up the MBP through the Airport Extreme... it sees my server drives just as any other volume, and I would have thought I would imagine using anything less than N would be terrifically slow. My backup scripts take about 90 mins to do as I've set them to verify the backups, longer for the disk duplication.

    I have two main scripts: one to do a daily backup of the Users directory, the other to do a monthly bootable disk duplicate (clone) of the entire drive. I love this piece of software but recognise it might be overkill for some.
