    Question App for backing up to an external drive?

    I'm wondering, if there's an app that makes backups of specific (user defined) folders and put them on an external harddrive?
    I would love to back up a few specific folders to an external harddrive, without having to worry about it.
    And yes, I know Time Machine makes perfect copies of my harddriveÖ and Iím already using it, but since I run a business I would like to have a secondary backup on my external harddrive just in case.

    - My goal would be to have these backups ALWAYS override previous*versions of the files included in those particular*folders (saved from earlier backups).
    So the backed up folders an respective files would ALWAYS contain the most recent versions.

    Any recommendations for apps that make this happen?

    * On Windows I used SyncBack SE for this, and it did the job perfectly!
    But too bad this app isnít available for OS XÖ

    Just set up and use TimeMachine backups built in to the Mac OS. You'll be fine....
