I tried using TERMINAL in a moment of brave inspiration. My first attempt. I found the instruction line to have Terminal print out a list of all folders on my internal HD. It didn't work. I tried two formulas? Anyone know a solution? Secondly, why does Migration Manager fail badly in transferring the OS to an external drive? My objective is to make that drive bootable. Why does the screen temporarily freeze when I right click the mouse to Move To Trash a selected item on the Desktop" It behaves like OS 9 all over again. Wait, Wait, Wait.
