Best Way To Back Up - 08/11/02 10:23 PM

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>

Thanx for that guys. I will try retrospect I think, as with Stuff It you are limited to how much you can compress at the same time.<br>I'll let you know how I'm going.<br>Thanx again<br><br>

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>

Well Ruben, this is another old thread and Gizmo has changed his icon...so the icon he had must not be on his server any more.<br><br>I'm sure if you go back further you will see old icons of me...and members who don't post here anymore...but that's ok,we know this already.<br><br>

Re: Best Way To Back Up - 11/26/02 06:02 PM

Actually, I've never padded in old posts with the exception of the last time you said that... I went back about 3 months and responded to every post you made that I could find and simply said "Hi Carp" <br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!
