    dobby, you seem to know your stuff, so it's curious that you don't type Mac instead of MAC. Mac is short for Macintosh, so when used in reference to Apple computers, should not be all caps.

    CCC will allow you to make further incremental backups later on (meaning it updates the backup with only recently changed files, hence taking much less time). Superduper requires a purchase for that feature.

    For $29 go for SuperDuper. the registered version uses a smart little operation called Smart Backup. A weekly use of this updates any changes/updates made to your system during the week and takes 2-3 minutes. That way you will always have an up-to-date bootable copy of your internal drive.

    And CCC is donationware in which the author asks user to make a donation.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Superduper! or CCC?
    I can vouch for Superduper! I use it for some years now on Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard. I did try CCC at the time but choose for Superduper! Regularly, I backup my computers (a MacMini and two MacBooks) to an external USB HD.
    About a year ago one of the MacBook's HD failed. After putting in a new HD, I successfully booted from the Superduper! backup copy and had the MacBook running in no time.
    I did have some issues in the beginning, but all of them were due to the external USB drives and, most of all, due to insufficient USB power that in turn was caused by bad cables and/or bad USB hubs. Advice: run your external USB HD directly from the computer USB port (not through a USB hub) and with twin USB connectors (one extra for power) or external power supply if your USB HD has it. Note that a USB power issue has nothing to do with Superduper! Support of Shirtpocket has always been prompt. I have not contacted them in a long time becauseI have no issues with the software.
