My main drive is a 40GB pulled from an old eMac, and I just picked up a 250GB Segate 7200RPM with 16MB Cache for cheap. (sub $100). Anyway, I want to move everything over to the new, faster, bigger drive but i'd rather not go thru the hassles of re-installing all my applications. Back in my pre OSX days, you could just slide the whole drive onto the new drive and there it was.. doesn't seem to work that way in OSX. I did try the Disk Utility 'restore' thing, by dragging my 40GB drive to the 'source' box, and my new 250GB drive to the 'destination' box, and after about 20 minutes, it said it was done.. but after switching the drives around, it wouldn't boot. When I compare the original drive to the new drive, I notice the new drive has some extra folders in it that have little arrows next to them (simular to a Windows shortcut symbol) called 'etc', 'tmp' and 'var'. Am I missing a step, or am I going about this the wrong way?
