  • tar and dump. the .mac backup will also backup to CD if you have a CD-R on your mac. A firewire drive also works well since it saves on restore time....but tar and dump are the old reliables.

    • I don't know if that solution will properly hang on to my HFS+ metadata. Do you?

      And Backup goes to CD, but wow, that would be slow and tedious. :-) Maybe if I had DVD-R, it would be less tedious, but still slow. I love using Retrospect to backup over 100baseT to another computer on the network, and then being able to restore from anywhere else in the world (ssh to home box, open up the FTP port on the firewall, then restore, then close the FTP port again :-).
