    Just to help you out, iBackup will work with Leopard and tiger, unlike Time Machine

    Welcome to Mac-Forums!

    Another suggestion - Archive & Install from the Tiger dvd. Tiger will overwrite the Lpd OS without affecting non-OS files. Once/if installation has occurred, give things a week or so to settle down, and if you're satisfied that the OS is stable and your applications are all working properly, you can delete the Previous System folder that will be created on A&I.

    That said, I'd still backup - just in case! Good luck!
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
