What disastrous upgrade? I upgraded 11 computers without a single issue. They included PB's, Mini's, iMacs and PM's.Nermal said:After the disastrous Tiger upgrade I'm going to be formatting anyway, but it's not a necessity.

if so how would i go about putting them on there?
if apple completely replaces ufs+ with zfs (which they might do) then yes, unless they give the option of either non-destructively converting the user's filesystem from ufs+ to zfs or allowing the user to use ufs+evanrousso said:Will all of my data have to be backed up and will my it reformat my drive?
Do you think this is how Time Machine is going to be implemented?from the article said:10. Clones with no ethical issues
The simple creation of snapshots and clones of filesystems makes living with ZFS so much more enjoyable. A snapshot is a read-only point-in-time copy of a filesystem which takes practically no time to create and uses no additional space at the beginning. Any snapshot can be cloned to make a read-write filesystem and any snapshot of a filesystem can be restored to the original filesystem to return to the previous state. Snapshots can be written to other storage (disk, tape), transferred to another system, and converted back into a filesystem.
