    Hi, cardboard.

    IMO SuperDuper! is the best backup software there is.

    That's what I use right before making an update. All updates are good at this point but I am ready if anything should go wrong with the installation or if the update is wonky.

    But if you plan on using the backed up version on the external hard drive to install a newer version of the OS to another Mac (I am understanding this right?) it might not work because there could be bits in the OS that are model specific, depending on how the OS was installed on the first machine.

    If it's only to synch files, you can always use target disk mode.
