    I have Power Mac G5 with the standard 250g system hard drive I am using a external 250g G technology hard drive connected up by firewire 800 for video editing and also have a 250g external hard drive connected firewire 400 what I am using for backup. My problem is my system drive is already down to 92g of free space and I still have a lot of digital photos to add to Iphoto. First question will I photo let me store my pictures on for example my backup drive or if I add another internal drive can store and move my photos in the second internal hard drive?:rolleyes:

    yes - I have my iPhoto library on an external drive. Back it up 1st, then copy it to the new drive location. Option - click on iPhoto to open, and it will ask you for the location of the new library (or, if there is no iPhoto library in its usual location, iPhoto will give you this prompt automatically).
