    Hi Guys,

    I normally clone my OSX. Currently i am trying to clone my Mavericks 10.9.3 into a larger HDD via Carbon copy cloner, but i seem to get this error message.

    I have already erased and partition my HDD (Mac os extended journaled) a couple of times...but the error suggest of a HFS+ format...

    How do i overcome this...thanks...

    Quick-n-dirty answer:

    Re-initialize the external drive to HFS+, journaling enabled, GUID partition format.

    Then try CCC again.
