    I have run out of space on my iBook, I want to copy EVER SINGLE file to my FireWire Hard Drive. Now I have 2 partitons on my iBook, Mac OS X Hard Drive and Mac OS 9 Hard Drive. I want to copy every single file from both partitions to my FireWire Drive. How can I do this in the fastest matter possible? I just wanna copy my files and wipe my iBook clean so I can Install Jaguar and have a clean new iBook. Please Help soon... :D Thanks, bye

    Go to version tracker and Carbon Copy, enter you admin pass and it should copy every file, including invisible ones.

    well

    you could also use a friend mac w/ 2 firewire slots, or your own and make the Ibook the an external HD my starting it up holding the T key then plug it in w/ a male 2 male connector in the powermac or what ever than drop the contents of the Ibook on to the other external HD.

    Hope that made sense, it is as easy as drag and drop if ya understood what i had just previously typed.

    Thouse firewire cables run for about $23 dolars as fry's. Good luck ;)
