    Apologies in advance for what may be a simpleminded question...but...
    My system hard drive is just about to go down. I have a new drive ready to go in. I have liked my system setup and don't want to change anything. While the old drive still works, can I simply copy the entire drive over to a new drive and re-bless the system folder and expect the OS and apps to work? thanks.

    No, 9.2 because of some music software I love.

    I'm a bit vague on OS9 now. It's been a while...

    What about using Disk Copy? Just a guess.

    Backing files on MacOS 9.2 is really easy. All you have to do is to drag the contents of your MacOS 9.2 computer en masse to a networked volume or a second mounted hard drive. You can then replace your your failing drive with a new one that has MacOS 9 drivers installed. Drag your saved contents to your new hard drive. Restart and you are on your way as though you had never stopped.
