I'm 87 and not all that nimblec anymore, I get windied just reading my name. When I saw the staggering amount of literature on Google on backing up your computer, I promptly got a migraine headache. Why destroy what's left of my brain when, if I'm polite, there are scores of you out theres who would love to help me.

I own an Apple g3 iBooK and run OS X 10.3.9 on it mostly for research and email communication. While my hard drive is not exactly overflowing with brilliant material, I am fond of the stuff I do have there. I need to know how (free is best)I can store a clone of my HD for safety somewhere until I get a more modern machine (not new, just newer) to house it. What I would love, were it possible, would be to have it painlessly downloaded online to whomever does this dreary stuff for a living, and shelve it for me until I need it. Now that's not going to br free but I can be sporty on occasion. C'mon, give me a hand.
