I guess I'm really missing something. I just don't get why you can't just sync the folders you need. Even if you can't sync at the user folder level (which is kind of a sledgehammer to crack a walnut).

If it needs to be absolutely identical and immediate.....
Why not just keep everything on the iMac machine and use screen sharing to control it from the Mac Mini? No syncing/no transferring backup required.

Just go upstairs, connect using screen sharing and everything will be identical because you'll be using the same Mac.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
