I, like you, didn't have too many apps or documents on my iBook when I installed Tiger. I chose the Erase & Install method, and within 20 minutes, it was done upgrading. No problems either.machiker said:I just got my update disk for Tiger. How should I update?

It's on my new 17" Powerbook, so I don't have much on the computer yet, just a few apps installed. Any help would be great.
Currently, I back up various files on CD but you are right, I am in need of that cheap external. Any recommendations? Thanks.yellow said:Sounds like you don't have any sort of back up solution currently. That's insane. What happens when your hard drive dies? Do yourself a favor and buy a cheap external firewire drive and use it to back up to.
I appreciate your help and will check out OWC today.yellow said:I've always been partial to LaCie products for desktop backup solutions.
I also have a SmartDisk FireLite drive which is perfect for a laptop (it's small and light)
Also, it's probably cheaper to buy an enclosure and buy a hard drive. For that I would go with OWC (Other World Computing) who has fantastic customer service and great prices for Mac items. Definitely go with firewire (or if you have a PC too, a dual firewire/USB2 enclosure), as Macs and USB2 don't work so well together.
