    Question need advice on external hd partitioning.
    I am running Tiger on an Intel MacBook.
    I want to use my LaCie external usb hd to backup my computer using SuperDuper. The LaCie is not partitioned and already contains a lot of files I have to save.
    Before I do a partition, here's my question:
    Should I save all those files back to my computer, partition the hd and then copy them back to one of the partitions? Or is there a better way to do this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Texas, where else?

    Without a 3rd drive, that is the only way to do it without purchasing what ends up being a single use application for most people. Here's one.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
