    Time Machine alternative for PPC Mac G5 10.4.11 using classic mode
    I still have this Mac that I use for many reasons including Classic for a Accounting application.

    I am concerned if it dies how to I recover a bootable OS when I need to rebuild the Mac.

    I have the APP and Data files backed up to my Cloud drive, that uses Time Machine for my other network newer Macs, very useful.

    I do not have any of the Disks for the G5. What can I do to create a Disk, or Disk Image to boot from.

    Not clear on how to do this?

    Thanks

    If you can't find any older apps used for backing up or cloning...you can always do things the manual way:

    - Install the OS on a 2nd HD.
    - install all your apps manually (one by one).
    - Copy all your files over manually.

    Have a look at SuperDuper. Older versions are available that date back as far as 10.2 Make sure to to read carefully and get the right version for your OS. Keep two things in mind:
    1. You can’t use a USB drive and be bootable. FireWire drives usually work.
    2. Tine Machine backups are not bootable under the older OS versions.

    As well as Super Duper as mentioned above, Carbon Copy Cloner is also available: Download CCC 3.4.7 for use on Tiger (10.4):

    You also have the option of creating an Image using Disk Utility.app. Its Help will show you how.
