    I have an iBook with an 80 GB hard drive with priceless data on it that would hurt to lose. I want an external hard drive to backup to. Would this be a good solution?

    Buy an IDE/Firewire case and a large Seagate/Western Digital hard drive
    Partition the hard drive into 80 GB and whatever else is left
    Use CCC to maintain a bootable backup on one partition
    Use the rest of the space for various other files

    Would this be good? Can somebody recommend some cases or hard drives?

    Just dont drop the hard drive...western digital has bad tech support (of course, this is only my opinion). And I would try backing up your stuff on two sources, if say for instance, your hard drive goes south.
