Hi. I made an exact copy of my Mac and have the update thing. but i was wondering if it could backup my computer like normal everyday and also be able to use the hard drive to save video that i edit. i dont want the video on my comp because it would take alot of space. so i was wondering how would i backup to my external but also use the external to save video. do i have to partition or whatever? please be easy on me for im having trouble trying to figure this out.

Sorry, you posted at 1:22AM local time, and then again at 4:39AM -- gotta sleep sometime!

You can do that, but you need to partition the destination drive into two volumes, one for your backup and one for your video. See "Storing a backup alongside other files on a destination drive" in the User's Guide.
