I have an external hard drive which I have partitioned into two sections. One is a bootable partition so I can boot from that should my computer drive fail and the other section is just for backup storage. The computer I want to back up is my PowerBook G4. Is there a widget that can help me back up everything including applications or can I just "drag and drop" from computer to external? I know that I can drag my user file to get all my stuff but want to see if I can back up my applications too!

Anyone have any feedback on this?
