Basically im wanting to create a clone of my ibook g3s hard disc, its the original 10GB stock one and would like to be able to restore my current setup if i ever replace the drive. Put alot of work into getting this thing running how i like it! My idea so far has been to use a one of those small USB flash drives (the really small ones that barely stick out of the port) and leave it plugged in all the time, with the ibook running scheduled backups. I understand the flash drive wont be bootable due to it being powerpc, but if i do the backups to the flash drive and then try to restore a new hard disc from it (using the disc utility on the mac os disc) would it boot? sorry if this has already been covered, i was unable to find any threads which would cover this and i'd appreciate your help! Cheers!
