    I don't have a clue what your problem is, nor how to remedy it. Mostly because of the presentation of your question. Can you elaborate, preferably using punctuation and spelling commiserate with proper use of the English language? And a few less emoticons? One does the trick, usually, two gets the point across with emphasis. Twenty greatly diminishes your credibility.

    This is still confusing? Are you trying to do a network backup?

    Still verbose I see. :-(

    Were does CCC become involved because from the screenshot it appears you are manually copying files?

    Either way why not use a ftp client like Transmit which is a lot faster than built in ftp anyways? (Never had a problem with it.)

    Hi, sadly, you cannot write to an FTP server via the Finder. You need a separate disk to write the files to. Of you could use .Mac (email, website, file hosting, Mac utilities, and other stuff), but that costs money. So does buying a drive.

    You could purchase a cheap one for about $70. I was actually surprised to find this name-brand drive from a store I shopped with before:
    http://www.compuplus.com/i-LaCie-16...ive-300702U-1001496~.html?sid=p9lsm89o7654g7j

    That was the best price I've found for an external Firewire HD.

    The calculated shipping for me was about $8.

    If you do your own search, be sure to not buy from a store called "MegaCameras". Big huge scam.
