Hi All.

1st time poster so take it easy on me

Im after a bit of advice, we have a small office set up with around 8 macs which all work on a shared area on a leopard server. Time machine is set up to take a backup of the shared area daily to a internal drive.

I need to arrange a off site backup solution, probably once a week would suffice, would a portable external hardrive be the best solution using firewire?
Will time machine allow me to setup another backup when 1 is already set up ? Or can i just drag and drop. Data size would be about 200 GB.

Any advice much appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
