It's over 500 gb, so I keep it on an external hard drive. I have a backup on a second hard drive which I used to update with Retrospect. It's not compatible with Lion, so here's my question: How can I do an incremental backup, so I don't have to copy the whole thing every time I back up? Is there an application that works with Lion (SilverKeeper doesn't)? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    Why not using TimeMachine? It is doing everything in the background.

     

    Or you might want to try to paid version of SuperDuper, that also allows for incremental backups (called SmartUpdate) for your whole disk.

    Hi

     

    CarbonCopyCloner:

    And it's free. As the other poster has mentioned I would also seriously consider TimeMachine as it too is free.

     

    HTH?
