What OS is on the G3 now. There's a program called carbon copy clone, I think, but I'm not sure if it's for OS X only. Look it up on the internet.

My first question is about when you said it's a external drive. Is it really a external drive, or did you intend to say that it's a internal one?

Like a few others have said, tell us more. What OS are you running? Also if you know, does it have the Revision 1 or Revision 2 motherboard? One quick way you can tell is does it have the Dual drive bracket so you can install 2 HDD's one on top of the other? That usually means it's a REV 2. The Rev 1 has problems with some hard drives and data corruption problems with 2 hard drives installed.
