    Transferring OS and all files from original HD to larger external HD
    I'm using an older G4 in our art dept and the limited size of the hard drive has us handcuffed as far as being able to complete any work due to running out of disk space every 5 minutes..

    We recently added a much larger external hard drive and wish to transfer the start-up disk, OS, all software, etc. to this newer larger HD. This way the system won't run out of disk space in the middle of a job.

    What's the best way to go about performing this task?

    Thanks in advance...

    If you want to clone your system to the new disk and boot from it then SuperDuper will do the job.
