i have used super duper with a new '09 imac on hard wire ethernet - very trouble free and simple.

a friend has a new intel mac book (10.5.8 soon 10.6.2) and an older pc running vista. he has no b/u except for burned dvds for a few key files. he has a wi-fi local network in his home. he would like to have the same back up service i have on his two machines. he has no need for frequent backup provided by time machine - but if time machine is best way to go that is fine.

a simple way to go:
- is to do super duper w/ new OWC HD for the mac - use fw if avail, if not usb2
- do a sep bu (s/w suggestions) for the pc

my friend would like to do both machine b/u simultaneously if the method is simple and reliable.


suggestions/comments solicited.

Well, we don't work at all with PCs.

I certainly would suggest a directly connected drive for the Mac (get multi-interface, high quality drive, e.g. the LaCie d2 Quadra (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001KFH6JC?ie=UTF8&tag=shirtpocket-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B001KFH6JC)).
