Hey Guys, I have been trying to do some research to find out the answer to my question but I have so far come up empty handed. My question is this: I have a 500 GB external FW drive that I use to both back up my internal hard drive with Personal Backup (not as a clone, just as a backup) and to just store things that I do not need on the internal drive in my Powerbook. I am looking to upgrade to Leopard in the next week and would like to do an erase and install. I was wondering if in order to clone my current drive running Tiger (10.4.11) I would need to completely erase my external drive and partition it to two volumes and create a volume to be a bootable clone and a volume for just regular stuff that I don't want on my Powerbook's internal drive? I really cannot lose the extra things that I store on the external drive but I would like to have a bootable copy of my current drive on it before upgrading. Any advice or clarification of this process and what I would need to do would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
