My first post so please excuse any errors! Have done a search but couldn't find what I need.
A friend running a network of 3 i-Macs has asked me to recommend automated backup software. I am a PC user and love my brilliant Handybackup programme which can back up all data to a HD once and then just add the incremental changes automatically at the interval of choice (i.e. overnight).
Thanks for all the links. I use a 250GB 5000XT Maxtor drive attached by Firewire to my laptop, running automated overnight/weekly/monthly backups using handybackup.
The HD was great value but am on my second physical drive - the first one failed immediately and the second one failed and had to be reformatted. Seems OK now though - I keep it in a quiet still corner! Not sure if I just had a bad batch or if Maxtor build quality is dodgy.
