Time Machine questions
on Jun 4, 2009 at 8:03:17 pm

i just got leopard and want to try out Time Machine, but it looks like the only option is for it to back up the entire contents of my Mac (all drives) to one single other drive. I was hoping to be able to use Time Machine for a few specific folders. Is that possible? Like Folder 1 on Drive A to be backed up to Drive D, Folder 7 and 12 on Drive B to go to Drive D, etc.

Thanks again!

In the time machine preferences you can specify things NOT to backup. THat is really all you can control.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

Thanks, ya, that was the conclusion i came to after clicking around a bit more. So really since the biggest drives available are now either 1.5TB or 2TB, that is really all the info that can be "Time-Machined" since it all has to go to a single disk, right?

By the way, i've been staying away from any single drives over 1TB as i hear their performance has been a bit shakey. Anyone out there experience this or are you just buying the biggest available and getting great results?

Thanks again!
