I have a user that uses our G4 and I'd like to backup all files on it. Problem is I can't figure out how to have a script run that would backup all files if she's still logged on b/c she doesn't have access to all the folders. I was going to use cron to run an applescript to do this. Is there a way through the sudo command or do I have to log on as Administrator everytime to do something like this?
