    Replacing internal start-up drive on Power Mac G5
    I've today installed a new internal drive on my Power Mac G5 which I would like to use as the start-up drive. How should I go about cloning my original hard drive to this new one? Do I have to re-install all of my software on the new drive or is there a way to send everything over all together. Jeez, I hope so.

    There are two HD cloning tools, SuperDuper and I can't remember the second one off the top of my head. Google HD cloning for Mac.

    Carbon Copy Cloner is probably the other one you were thinking about.

    Some of the cloning advice I've been reading has insinuated that if I clone my drive onto another one with greater capacity I would be wasting the extra gigabytes. Does this mean that a cloned drive is basically a ROM copy? Or, once I clone will the cloned drive still be able to function normally?
