    Back-up with lost Snow Leopard disk
    I want to back-up my entire hard drive before installing a new hard drive, but I can't find the Snow Leopard disk I bought a couple months ago. Can I just buy a new one in order to clone the hard drive, or is there some reason I need the original disk?

    The easiest thing to do would be to buy a USB to SATA/PATA adapter like this one: - VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter - Adapters & Gender Changers

    Then, use SuperDuper! to make a clone of your system from the old drive to the new drive. Install the drive and you're done.
    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!
