Hi folks, I'm selling my laptop (iBook G4 1.2 running 10.3.9) to get the newest iMac and I want to back up my hard drive. I have a lacie 320 GB external hard drive. Could I just select all folders from my hard drive and copy them to my external hard drive? Why or why not? To me, it seems like copying those folders would be alright. If it were this easy, then why purchase backup software? Is there a benefit to those programs, other than scheduled backups or one button backups? I'm pretty sure I don't want to back up the system files because I'll be using a new operating system. Any help or tips on this would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to buy any software if possible. Thanks.
