Hi all,

Hopefully I have placed this thread in the best category.

I have a Macbook and Macbook Pro in the house, and would like to back them up to the 2TB external HD attached to my Mac Mini. Up until now I have created folders called 'mike_backup_november09' etc but surely there is something which will help me backup better, and maybe just the files that have changed if that is a better solution?

The key thing is that it is over the network. I've heard a lot of people use SuperDuper - can it work over the wireless network?

Not a fan of Time Machine from having read up on it...

What do people do for there wireless backup solutions?

Many thanks,
QUOTE Thanks

Yup I use SuperDupa. It great and will work over wireless. Better to have an Ethernet cable though as it will be much faster.
