Im currently making a full backup of my macbook HD to my External HD. Is it normal that its taking 14+ hrs to fully backup? I have around 50gb to transfer.
Im using Superduper to do the backup..if that matters.

Not normal. Make sure your writing to the external drive and not a disk image.

ok..so it took alot longer than I thought..prob around 17-18 hours. haha But atleast its done now. I checked the External and everythings there.

Now the question is..once I put the larger HD in..and load leopard..do I just drag back the apps/ docs I want to keep?
