Thread: Bootable backups
09-03-2008, 10:04 AM #1Bootable backups
In order to try and protect the information on my MBP, I have Time Machine running together with a Time Capsule and that works like a dream.
Next step is to ensure I can recover quickly from a failing hard disk so I got myself an external 500 GB LACIE disk on FW800 and SuperDuper.
No experience with SuperDuper so far.
I would like to keep 3 generations of bootable backups on this external disk so my question is .... Do I need to create 3 bootable partitions on the external disks or just 1 and during a restore, how can I select the backup I need to restore if more than 1 is present
Any advice will be much apreciated.
MarcA computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
