Well the new iMac comes tomorrow and is welcomed into the "family" of other Macs. My question is that while I will be using a new Time Capsule to do backups, I would also like to use Carbon Copy Cloner on a LaCie Partitioned drive (3TB total, 3 partitions). Would USB3 or Thunderbolt be faster to use? Can I put the CC Clone on any partition on the LaCie 3 TB drive or does it need to take over the entire drive with no partitions? Does CC Cloner need to backup to the first partition on the multi partition LaCie d2 drive? Can't wait!
