    Can i make a clone of my boot volume on a new HD i installed then erase my old original HD and put the new drive in master and the old drive(former boot volume) as slave. Without losing any net settings/preferences or data?

    I'm doing this due to extreme performance issues with my original drive (40 GB Segate) and my new drive (120 GB Seagate with 8mb cache) being so much better...

    I want to get as much mileage fom the new drive as possible, and I dont think using it as storage is the best way of getting that mileage.

    You should be able to make a bootable image with CCC, but I wouldn't erase your old drive until you are booting from the new drive. (and confirm that all of your stuff is there.)

    There are some instances when CCC doesn't boot properly after the imaging. I would check out the forums on CCC's home page to learn more about issues.

    I have used CCC a couple of times (for installing pre-installed OS X + apps and settings and so on) on multiple machines, and it's gr8!
    The only problems I had was when the destination disk had the same volume-name as the original :)confused: )....
