Well, it likley could be done usng TM, but that'd be my choice right after the warm place freezs over, I've never seen a mre "iify" backuyp App than TM.
I use FW drives on most of my Networks and use Tri-Backup...
Can't say enough good about Tri-Backup. :-)
Which can backup any CPU to any Drive in the Network, to/from any other CPU/Drive.
Of couse now that Apple is appandoning their best invention ever... Firewire, you'll need anoher Interface, avoid USB3.
Check these out for the Ineterfac of your choice...
