Gahhh!!! I was just about to install Deja Vu for doing backups now that I have Tiger installed on my G5. I was wondering if it was time for a "what do you use to backup in Tiger?" thread... I guess you beat me to it.<br><br><br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

Can Disk utility do scheduled drive to drive backups like these apps?? I don't understand.<br><br>

Re: Backing up in Tiger... - 05/04/05 09:47 AM

I am pretty sure it is not scheduled. I think it is a one time deal, but I don't know.<br>It would suffice until the other apps get updated maybe.<br><br><br>For Mike

Oh, I see. I think until Deja Vu returns I'll just do the old-fashioned drag and drop method. Believe it or not it still works! <br><br>

Siverkeeper form LaCie is not compatible either, so the restore feature in Apple Disk Utility will have to do. <br><br>

You can backup via automator ...the only downside is that it will do a full backup every time until someone writes an action to only update changed files.<br><br>

Re: Backing up in Tiger... - 05/04/05 11:19 AM

ah come on zach, go ahead and write an action. then you can send it to Apple and be a hero! <br>PS...you know I'm only playing with ya betwen here and MC..ha <br><br><br>For Mike

Sweet! ...just let me know if you run into a problem with folder shortcuts in your dock <br><br>

Re: Backing up in Tiger... - 05/04/05 11:51 AM

Now that you ask, I'd like a shortcut so that if a put a folder in the dock, when I click on it it will archive the folder. What do you think, can you make that shortcut for me?<br><br><br>For Mike

Re: Backing up in Tiger... - 05/04/05 03:56 PM

It's still easy. At the carbon copy cloner web site it shows you how to do it via command line:<br>http://www.bombich.com/mactips/image.html<br><br>It also shows an alternative method if you can download and install the latest version of psync, and a couple of perl libraries. I went through the trouble of doing that and now I can backup by going to the terminal and typing:<br> sudo /usr/local/bin/psync -d / /Volumes/BackupDrive<br><br><br>

Re: Backing up in Tiger... - 05/04/05 08:48 PM

Yeah, but the link I provided is a GUI for the psync commands, AND it allows you to visually schedule the backups, rather than having to invoke them every time you want to make a backup.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

Re: Backing up in Tiger... - 05/05/05 12:07 AM

A backup solution that requires you to type codes into the terminal is hardly a solution, dontcha think? I mean, if you have to actually do something, you might as well just drag the folders to a backup drive manually.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

And just how the heck am I supposed to back up 120 GIGS to .Mac's tiny little allotment of space? Not to mention that it's slow to copy compared to backing up to an external HD.<br><br>I used .Mac to backup my bookmarks, cookies, and a few other doo-dads, but nothing important.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

psync for me is _not_ backing up extended attributes in Tiger.<br><br>ie. the metadata that spotlight uses is not being copied.<br><br>This is probably because MacOSX::File doesn't know anything about xattr?<br><br>Try it yourself. Add keywords to a photo and then backup the jpeg. mdls will show you the metadata isn't copied to the destination.<br><br><br>
