    Talking Making image from a new mac?

    I just bought a Macbook and installed programs and stuff on it, took me a while to do it.

    I was wondering if some of you guys on this forum knew how to make a image from the macbook itself into a CD/DVD or a HD.
    If you do, could you guys give me link or name to the program (free or demo)and a guide would be nice.

    I dont want to install all these programs again, so just having a image would be very nice and spare me time if something happends to my macbook

    Thanks in advance

    Buy an external USB or Firewire hard drive at least as large as the hard drive of your MacBook and use one the very good cloning programs available:

    Carbon Copy Cloner =

    SuperDuper =

    There's also Time Machine which comes with Leopard. Learn how to use it.

    Thanks for reply, going to try out the programs you listed.
    I have a Firewire cable and a HD on 70 GB.
    If I manage to make a backup of my macbook, are you able to use the backup (image?) on other macbooks/mine with help of another macbook and disk untilities?

    Thanks ion advance!
