(My apologies for asking what is probably a very basic question!)

I have now basically filled my Mac Mini and I now have an Iomega external drive where I keep all my itunes data.

I'd like to know how to go about backing up all my stuff. Ideally i'd like to just be able to click on something which backs up everything since my previous back up.

Someone mentioned Time Machine to me which I don't have, what are my best/simplest options?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read these mindless witterings......

The simplest would be to get leopard so you can use Time Machine. Here is a list of other back-up apps
