Hi,
I feel a bit stupid asking this, but how do I go about backing up just my iPhoto Library to an external drive?

I created a script with the script command:
Copy:users/nanu/Pictures/iPhoto Library

and created/selected a sparse image on my external drive as the destination.

When I ran the script, it copied the iPhoto Library but it also copied a load of other folders: Applications, automount, Network, etc.

So, what did I do wrong and what should the command be?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Include the "Exclude all files" script in the "Include" tab of your script -- by default, all files are copied.

Hope that helps!

Trying it again now.
