Are you backed up?

Doubly so.

And, new 7200 200GB for the MBP. :)

(One backup before touching old drive, then the clone to new drive. OWC case for the old 160 arriving today, too.)

Super Duper'd to my external drive, plus FTP of a SuperDuper image to another box.. hopefully that will surfice :p

Haven't decided on the upgrade or reformat approach yet. I'd rather not reformat as it contains all my website and the ssh settings that I cannot remember how to set up !

Copy and Paste. All these backup tools are worthless, really.
DiskUtility works perfectly well and creates bootable backups (running it while booted from other than the source drive and using block copy). Copy and paste of user data is fine, but not very good for the rest.

I guess I'm agreeing on the tools (3rd party) - haven't used CCC for many years now (after some frustrating failures). I hear SuperDuper is ok, but I don't see the advantage of either over using DiskUtility (or command line ASR) for cloning.
