I need a simple way to backup the contents of my girlfriend's Macbook hard drive. The Macbook is running OS X 10.4.11 - Tiger
I don't need to be able to restore the entire OS Install. I just need to make sure that I can get access to saved files. I don't want to hunt through my hard drive now to find all the things that might be important later.
I plan to back up to to an external hard drive.
Can I follow the instructions for backing up using Disk Utility? (Even though I'm using 10.4):
Once the backup is complete, will I be able to easily mount the backup image to access files without restoring the entire thing back to the Macbook's internal hard drive?
Is there another (simpler) way to do it?
