I am running a very smoothly detailed copy of Mac OS X already tailored to my needs. But now I am running out of hard drive space due to installing to a 30 GB hard drive to ensure stability.
What do I do ? Rather than reinstalling a fresh copy and updating and tweaking, I would much rather be able to clone the bootable partition to my large drive. Unfortunately, Norton Ghost and other Windows based clone tools do not recognize the OS X file system. My partitions are setup as:
- A. ExtendedJournaled 80 GB (ideal to install OS X)
- B. ExtendedJournaled 30 GB (ideal for Time Machine)
- C. NTFS (ideal to install Windows Vista x32 with SP1)
To the rescue comes Carbon Copy Cloner (aka CCC), available for FREE at http://www.bombich.com
CCC is able to clone your working Mac partition and copy it to a new drive and still be bootable.
