Restoring New HD
I have just purchased a new 160Gb HD for my wonderful Macbook. Is there an easy wasy to clone the current drive onto the new disk, or would it just be best to to a clean and fresh install on the new 160Gb drive? I have all my software that I have installed, so thats not a problem?
Any words of wisdom would be helpful.
Go to newegg.com
get yourself an external enclosure for the old hard drive
copy the things you need, and enjoy your (relatively) free external storage!
I use SuperDuper for the cloning.
Hard drive enclosures start from around £5. I paid £16 (including P&P) for a Omata one - mainly for the colour. :)
Is there a way of doing this by creating an image on a network drive?
I found this link where you can also ask additional questions:
You can use a cloning utility like Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper!
There are two ways you should be able to do it...
• Put new drive in external-->Clone-->Put old drive in external-->Put new drive in MacBook
• Put old drive in external-->Put new drive in MacBook-->Boot from external-->Clone
* Reminder: You'll need to format the new drive with Disk Utility before cloning *
*** Test appropriately before deleting contents from original hard drive ***
You'll need a 2.5" SATA enclosure, like the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Oxford924 equipped 2.5" Portable FireWire 800 (with FireWire 400 support) + USB2 interface Hard Drive Enclosure Kit ( OWCMSTG800U2K )
