I'm looking to reformat my Macbook Pro. But. I have a problem. 33.98 gigs of music are on my laptop. And because I have a 15'' one, the dvd drive only burns at 4x speed, with 4.7 gigs of music per disc. I could, burn each and every disc, but the time to do that, and the time to copy it all back over would seem redundent. Is there anyway I can create a partition that wont get affected when I reinstall OS X, just enough to hold my music and other things? Email, pictures. Ect. I don't have an iPod large enough to hold a lot of data [a 4 gig mini] and I don't have an external drive either. Burning discs takes forrrrrever. Is there anything I can do? On a side note. [If I can't do that.] How do I back up mails files? I have some email messages that should be saved too.
