Hi mac friends,<br>Im currently in the process of working out the best way to back up a desktop (ie system folder, apps, files etc). Just wondering if any of you have anything you can suggest or recommend. Preferably something that will compress the data a little, as I have about 20 macs to back up.<br>Regards,<br>Con<br><br><br>
If all of the Macs are on the same network I would recommend Retrospect Workgroup (backs up 20 clients for $399 [i think] or you can pay for more clients). Its great software and will backup to any media and picks the computers that are in most need of being backed up first. We use the Workgroup version in our computer lab. <br><br>Ryan
StuffIt for compression of files, burn to CD... unless you have the money for more complete backup solutions such as the one mentioned above.<br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

Put your foot on the brake, grab the gear handle and put the indicator at the R (if automatic) or move the stick shift to R (if manual), look behind you, and back up slowly, keeping an eye on what's behind you at all times. <br><br>That's how you back up safely. <br><br>
