    So i basically just got leopard :D

    unfortunately i need to upgrade from tiger to leopard without loosing my files or programs that i currently have on my disk, is there a way that i could possible retain my files when installing etc without having to spend time backing up the whole disk.


    If not could anyway recommend a solid way of doing this, i don't want to take to much of a risk and backing up to me is completely poissible but my Macon External Hardrive isn't compatible with my mac and i can't find a mac driver so any advice on that would also be helpful!


    basically i'm stuck! :(

    Archive and install? That worked perfectly for me, didn't loose a thing. :)

    You should backup whatever you decide to do. ALWAYS backup your data.


    Archive and install would probably be the best way of upgrading to Leopard given what you have said.
