Question Newbie question/confusion

I apologize in advance for my confusion. When I perform a back up, I would like to save everything on my hard drive at the time without deleting any files backed up previously. I guess I'm wanting to use my external drive to archive in addition to backing up current files so I can remove items, i.e. digital photos from my Powerbook without losing them.

I have made back ups of many items via CD/DVD, but would like for them to remain on the external drive as well if that's possible.

I have held off on any backups, Smart Update or otherwise until I know I'm not going to lose items from previous backups that have been removed from my Powerbook.

Hope this makes sense. Thank you for your help.

"Copy Newer" and "Copy Different" won't remove items from the backup (although they will overwrite files that have changed.

Note, though, that we can't guarantee you'll be able to start up from the backup. But your files will be there.
