I've learned some great tips on backups from this article and forum. My confusion is with online backups especially with iPhoto. I've read for days about online services. Do I need to select a service that supports Time Machine? Would the photos be placed back into the same organization? As a newer Mac user, it seems a bit different than backing up jpegs from a PC.

I'm glad you enjoyed the article. Part 2 should be up in a few days.

I have not had much experience with online backup services so please take the following with a huge grain of salt. I don't think the service necessarily must be Time Machine. In the case of iPhoto it would need to keep the library file structure intact.

Slydude-Thanks for your quick response. I'm going to try out a Western Digital firewire HD's instead of online backups.
