A New Backup Strategy

April's hard drive has been replaced and the last backup restored. But what an effort. Thinking there must be a better way I did some research and have opted for the following strategy, primarily using an application called SuperDuper!. This simple OS X application costs $27.95 and allows a mirrored drive to be easily created and easily maintained. This cost doesn't include buying a second hard drive, which should be the same size or larger than the computer's hard drive. Because my mirrored drive is a Firewire drive, it can act as a backup boot drive. If you are in the market for a better way to backup files and data, consider SuperDuper!
