    Backup Program?
    Hey folks,
    After a program like Super Duper or CCC!
    I have tried both, but there never seems to be enough space (about 25 gb left) on my Mac's HD to make a disc image, I have tried restricting the size of the image/selecting key files, but nothing seems to work.

    Any idea's?

    Why are you making a backup on your Mac's hard drive? That is basically the same as not having a backup.

    My first idea would be to suggest you get an external drive so that you have a backup in case your internal drive fails.

    Also, if you have less than 15% free space left on your internal drive, you are only asking for slow downs with the spinning beach ball and other problems.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    ...and use Time Machine from Apple, already installed.
