Dear all, I've got a major headache that I hope some of you can suggest in helping to solve my problem. I've previously posted in the OSX section, but no one has replied me=( I'm about to upgrade to Snow leopard and I've just got a new 500gb hard drive that i want to replace with my existing drive on my mbp. There lies in my problem. I've partitioned my current hard drive into 3 portions and I have absolutely no idea how to go about backing them up and then subsequently restoring them on the new hard drive.I know about carbon copy cloner and the other alternatives, but it seems that I can only clone one "bootable" volume for me to work on. What makes my problem worst is that I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard as well and at the same hope to do Here's a brief summary on my headache -New hard drive that I want to put in -Want to port over my data to the new hard drive but am currently partitioned on my current hard drive and have no idea how to "clone" the entire drive over. -Want to upgrade to Snow leopard, but am opting to do the clean install method. Sorry for the noobish questions, but I've googled all over and can't seem to find a conclusive solution to my headache and I am absolutely new to how I should upgrade from one OS to another version in Mac. I would really appreciate it if some kind soul or guru could give me a step by step walkthrough on how i can transfer my data to my spanking new hard drive and yet at the same time ensure that Snow Leopard is installed on it as clean as it can be. Really am thanking you guys in advance for any suggested solutions.
