    I have an extra hard drive that I would like to make a perfect copy of my current hard drive in my MacBook.

    what are some freebie programs that can do this pretty easily?

    I never understand why people go out and buy things when Disk Utility is quite capable of doing this.

    Carbon Copy Cloner is uncrippled shareware, free of charge unless you want to make donations. (which it is more than worthy of)

    I love the program and use it regularly.

    And the version 3 is very nice.

    How would you use Disk Utility to create a bootable copy of your HD?

    BTW, CCC is donation ware.
