Backup System Recommendations
on Apr 29, 2010 at 8:09:51 pm

Hi Creative Cows,

I'm working on a project that has about 250 hours of source material. One of our Firewire 800 ports on our MacPro just went out and now we're scarred that the logic board might fail on us soon.

We want to create a backup of 2 different things:

1) The entire computer and OS - so that if the logic board does fail, we can easily replace it and not lose absolutely anything

2) All our media on a number of EXT HDs

Does anyone have any recommendations for any reliable, FREE backup systems or programs out there for Macs?

Thanks again, everyone!

Thanks,
Chris Guevarra

Add another internal drive to you Mac Pro equal in size to your system drive and use Carbon Copy Cloner (free software) to clone your system drive. You can also use CCC to clone your external hard drives.
