Thanks, am trying that now.

Having an Amiga with a hard disk is a new experience for me. Until I got the CF card, I purely had a dual floppy system which is what I used back in the day. Now I am discovering the wonders of Workbench!

I had all sorts of stuff for my Amiga. Scanner, Vidi, sampler, etc. But a hard disk of a useful size was about as obtainable as a jet pack!

The advantage of LHA is that the Mac can't spew hidden files all over the directory system when I copy the files back onto here for safe keeping!

Will keep you guys posted as to if the backup succeeds. At the moment there's just lots of flashing!

Cheers.
