Default Macbook Pro & External Drive Backup - Need Advice

I save all my session data to an external drive. I was planning to use Carbon Copy Cloner to make an image of my Mac in case I need it but what about backing up my session data that lives on the external hard drive?

Thanks.

Default Re: Macbook Pro & External Drive Backup - Need Advice

Anything important is not really backed up until it is backed up in 3 places(Craig Anderton's advice which I respect). At the very least, you could simply copy everything on the external drive to another external drive(this is a place where a USB drive can be used as you are not trying to run sessions from it. I would also burn some DVD-R's of anything important. Read up on "housecleaning" so you don't waste disk space with unused/unwanted audio files.
