    backup!
    hi guys.
    i just brought a new HD to back things up from my macbook.
    is there any apps that will let me backup folders but without having to look whats new and whats already on there? i dont wont to have to look each time or just replace files.

    cheers.

    SuperDuper! does all the looking for you. It's the best out there in backup software plus it makes your external a bootable drive in case problems happen on your Mac.

    I also use iBackup for quick daily backups.

    I'm not so sure about SuperDuper. I did a complete backup of my HD when I got my external backup drive this week. Today I tried to do a Smart Update backup, where it just backs up the changed/new files, and removes the deleted files. But everytime I tried to do it, tried over 5 times, it would go partway, then stall. Had to tell SuperDuper to stop in order to do anything with it.

    Hmm. seems like the problem might have been due to my disk needing repair. Worked fine after it was repaired.
