Hello all. I bought my 17" MBP about 8 months ago. Ive never been happier with a purchase before in my life. So Ive spent the last 8 months learning about the Mac, Unix, afp and all the other new goodies that come along with owning the Mac. But Im still having some workflow issues. For example, ripping and or burning DVDs. What I would like to do is kill 2 birds with one stone, but I usually have to use 2 stones. In order to rip a DVD to watch on my iPhone or iTunes, I use handbrake. In order to burn the DVD I use a Windows program (running Vista 64 in Parallels) called AnyDVD and CloneDVD. So how does the seasoned Mac user accomplish these tasks efficiently? Another project I plan on tackling is upgrading my 260gb HDD to 500gb. But the different options for backing up my data are confusing me. I read I can use Winclone for the Vista partition and CCC or similar for MAC OS X. But why not use the built in utilities? Windows has its own backup and restore feature and Mac can use Disc Utility. So what are the benefits of using something like Winclone or CCC instead of the built ins?
