Hello, Context: replacing my HD, backing up old HD. Due to my Time Machine issues, I have downloaded Carbon Copy Cloner. So far, it has been working great. I'm only about twenty minutes in and it has already cloned 5.52 GB. Plus, it tells you what files it is cloning. Fantastic. So much better than Time Machine! However, I have two questions: 1. Before I started the disk-to-disk clone process, CCC told me that the transfer would be "bootable". What does this mean? 2. When I open my Segate HD (i.e., the 1 TB external HD that the clone is being copied onto), I notice a lot of the files from my HD are already in there and transferred. For instance, Network, Developer, dev, Resources, etc. However, they all have RED SIGNS in front of them. A red circular sign with a horizontal white line in the center. It says I don't have permission to open these files. Given that my HD is going to be replaced and I need to access those files, is this going to be a problem? Or do I only not have permission to access them now (as in, while the transfer is still operating). In other words, once the transfer is done, will I be able to load my files onto my newly installed HD?
