From other posts it seems that alot of people recommend doing a fresh install of Leopard and back up my HD. I have an external HD that I use with my Mac and Windows computers. I downloaded CCC, but it doesn't recognize my external HD as a target. Someone suggested that I need to format the HD for a MAC. I don't want to lose my data. I saw there was an option for Backup everything and create disk image, but it will not be able to boot from the image. Will creating a disk image of my Mac HD allow me to copy my files back over once Leopard is installed?
