Hi All

I'm just a novice with Macintosh and very confused with the mass of options to back up the hard drive and was wondering if anyone can suggest a simple and quick way of backing up my hard drive. I don't have loads of stuff, just want to back up itunes, ical, documents and few other bits and pieces.

I run Tiger on PowerPC imac G5 and have a Lacie portable hard drive.

Hope you can help.

Thanks Raff
