    Macbook Pro backup opinions
    My Macbook Pro's hdd just failed me before my ear warranty was up. woohoo anyway I dont want to lose all of this music, pictures, and etc again. What should I go with?
    Time Capsule?
    Regular External?
    I am also going to secondarily back it up on a cloud.

    Specs:
    Black MacBook 2.2GHz C2D, 4GB Ram - iMac G4 700MHz, 512MB Ram
    I'd just pick an external hard drive, and then use Time Machine for all of the back ups.

    Get an external Firewire HD and use the free app Carbon Copy Cloner.
    CCC makes an exact back up and bootable copy of your system HD.

    It might not hurt to have both CCC and Time Machine.
