Using my computer while doing a backup
I am doing an erase and copy as I write this. With more than 300 gigs to copy across, it is going to take several hours to finish. As my time is important, I am continuing to use my computer, writing emails, making documents etc., as it backs up.

The next time I do a backup it will be a Smart Update. Will all the new files etc., that I make WHILE the current backup is running, be correctly recognized as not yet backed up, and thus be updated during the Smart Update?

Thanks in advance!

Yes. Note you shouldn't work/save/write to large files while backing up (don't run VMWare/Parallels, Entourage, convert movies, etc).

I think best way to back up is networking..if you have the another and yo know about networking concept so with IP address so you can make your bake up very fast otherwise if you need have work and you want to back up so other hard drive is option copy your important data in other hard drive and continue our work..
