    Hello all,

    In preparation for an upgrade to 10.5, I ran permission repair and verify disk. Never had been done, ever. 10.4.11 PPC Mini.

    I also wanted to run DiskWarrior. First thought to clone the drive to an external firewire drive.

    Carbon Copy Cloner got about 1/4 then stopped. Tried again (default parameters) and let it sit for 5-7 min. upon return still stuck at 1/4 progress. Had to force quit.

    Then booted from FW external to run DW 4.2 (10.5.7). It got part way through then hung up.

    Decided to call it quits for the day. Have since found DiskWarrior 3 which is PPC only but there is still the CCC issue.

    Comments appreciated.

    Good point, was about 15 min overall. Have not used a PPC 1.25gHz for some time, are you thinking this could take a hour or more?

    Cloning a disk can take a long time, over an hour for slower drives or lots of data. Try using Activity Monitor's disk activity pane to see if it's still doing stuff.

    I've had clones take three or four hours. All depends on how much you have on the hard drive and how large the hard drive is.

    A lof ot the time too it will seem to be frozen, but because it's in an area of the disk where there is nothing but small files, the progress bar does not advance noticeably.

    Right you were.

    Went out to the garage to work on my honey do list, came back 45 min later and it was just finishing up the clone.

    Now to try DiskWarrior. Guess I should try v3 since it is the same vintage as the PPC Mini.
