Can i make a clone of my boot volume on a new HD i installed then erase my old original HD and put the new drive in master and the old drive(former boot volume) as slave. Without losing any net settings/preferences or data?


I'm doing this due to extreme performance issues with my original drive (40 GB Seagate) and my new drive (120 GB Seagate with 8mb cache) being so much better...

I want to get as much mileage fom the new drive as possible, and I dont think using it as storage is the best way of getting that mileage.


Is cloner pretty simple to get this done? I just want to transfer the data then swap the placement of the drives and put the 40 in the carrier above the 120 and then use the 120 as my main drive and the 40 as swap/storage drive.


Any help is very much appreciated.

running 10.2.6
867 QS
only two HDs (S/M)


any other advice?

yup, you can do just that with CCC. This program is a really nice application built using Apple Script Studio. It is a wicked program that takes the "ditto" command and copies the whole system disk and the symbolic links over to your new drive. You even have the option of repairing permissions on your current master drive before copying the files to your new drive as well as blessing the system folder to ensure you can reboot into Mac OS X on your newly cloned system,

This is a great piece of software. From what I have heard, Apple Computer has even hired Mike Bobich on full time to help them with the NetRestore features in Mac OS X Server. If you go into the advanced options of CCC, you can see that it can create ASR (Apple Software Restore) images as well as turn your current image into a full blown NetBoot based image.

uhm, so to answer your question, it will do everything you need it to do in order to image, swap, and boot without any problems.

I've been using CCC for a long time now and I have to say it's the single most valuable utility I have used.
