    Backing up old tower and new macbook
    hey all,

    i have an old G4 tower that i still use for my main work. i have a 750gig usb/fw ext hd hooked up to that for back up. i use superduper for that. i also have a macbook that i would like to back up as well to that same ext hd. is there a way to back it up wirelessly thru my tower? i realize i can do a simple drag n drop to my public folder from the macbook and then have superduper pick it up that way, but id like to know if theres a way for the macbook to be backed up on a schedule, wirelessly. thanks in advance.

    p.s. i have an airport base station for internet.

    In order to share more than your public folder use Share Points

    ah yes, forgot about Sharepoints. we used to use that here at work before we got a big server.

    so does that mean i could install superduper on the macbook, and have it back up to whatever "sharepoint" i designate?

    It will just be a mounted disk, so as long as there is room then yes
