Possible to use TC as clone of boot drive in Leopard?

Time Machine seems to take FOREVER whenever I run it, so I end up not running it. I was wondering if it is possible to use Time Capsule as a pure hd and clone my boot drive to it for a full backup option? If so, how? Are there reasons not to?

Bad sectors automatically get re-written when new data are supplied. If the new data don't "stick" a spare will be substituted.
If you are happy with your clone, just update it. There is no need to write Zeroes to it. I was suggesting that process for when you make major changes -- it takes several hours to complete.
You may prefer to use you smaller drive, Zeroed, to start a new clone, wait a little while to assure success, then start a Time Machine backup set on the larger Iomega.
Or some other approach that has not occurred to me.

  • Is it possible to use External HD as main boot drive? (Help!)

    Hi all
    I am about to buy a Seagate FreeAgent Pro (link: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/478636-REG/SeagateST305004FPA1E3_RK_FreeAgent_Pro_500GB_eSATA.html) with 500Gb and FW400/USB2.0/eSATA. I have a Mac Mini, and its internal HD is too small for me (80Gb total for about 70Gb of data).
    What I'd like to do is install OS X on the External HD and use it as my main boot drive, and perhaps the Mini's internal HD for data backup. Would that be possible/legal (I only have the install discs that came with it - my first Mac :D)? If it is complicated, could you guys explain me how to do it?
    I'd also like to know whether the performance would be better or worse. The Mini's got a 5400 RPM drive, and the external is 7200 RPM and would be connected through FW400 (plus a lot of free space for now).
    One last question: if it is indeed possible/legal to use the External HD as my main boot drive, would it be possible to install and boot Windows on the external HD using Boot Camp or Parallels?
    Cheers

    Performance will be worse because FW400 is considerably slower than the internal bus. For startup I would continue using the internal drive. You can use the external drive for data storage as well as off-loading any music, picture, and movie files to free up space on the internal drive. You can also partition a chunk of the external drive (80 GBs) to use as a backup partition for the internal hard drive. You can clone your internal drive to the external (partition) which will give you a bootable backup. Here's how:
    How to Clone Using Restore Option of Disk Utility
    1. Open Disk Utility from the Utilities folder.
    2. Select the backup or destination volume from the left side list.
    3. Click on the Erase tab in the DU main window. Set the format type to Mac OS Extended (journaled, if available) and click on the Erase button. This step can be skipped if the destination has already been freshly erased.
    4. Click on the Restore tab in the DU main window.
    5. Select the backup or destination volume from the left side list and drag it to the Destination entry field.
    6. Select the startup or source volume from the left side list and drag it to the Source entry field.
    7. Double-check you got it right, then click on the Restore button.
    8. Select the destination drive on the Desktop and press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. At the bottom in the Ownership and Permissions section be sure the box labeled "Ignore Permissions on this Volume" is unchecked. Verify the settings for Ownership and Permissions as follows: Owner=system with read/write; Group=admin with read/write; Other with read-only. If they are not correct then reset them.

  • What's the best way to clone my boot drive?

    I just bought a new 500GB drive for my G4. What's the best way to clone my boot drive?
    Is there a way to put the new drive on the buss as a second drive and then copy everything from my boot drive to the new drive? How do I make the new drive bootable?
    Or
    Do I have to install OSX on the new drive, put the old boot drive on the buss as a second drive and migrate everything to the new drive with the Utilities Migration Assitant program?
    Are there programs available to make this easier? Where & how much?
    Thanks for any help I can get.

    bamim2:
    Dr. Smoke's FAQ Backup and Recovery has excellent advice on developing a backup strategy.
    You already have a larger extrnal HDD (Hopefully it is firewire?) The next step is to format and partition the HDD. (see step-by-step below). And thirdly you will need a good cloning utility. Carbon Copy Cloner has already been suggested, and the latest version is excellent. I, personally, prefer SuperDuper for its ease of use and efficiency. Both are great tools and relatively simple to use.
    I mentioned the hope that you have a firewire. One of the wonderful benefits of using an external firewire HDD for backing up is that you can make a bootable clone. This gives you an emergency boot drive in case of a problem. It also gives you an external device for running diagnostics and repairs from the extnernal to the computer and vice-versa.

  • Is it possible to use aMacBoock Pro as a hard drive for my iMac?

    Is it possible to use aMacBoock Pro as a hard drive for my iMac?

    Yes, if both machines have FireWire ports (400 or 800, they're both OK):
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1661
    Probably (maybe?), if both machines have Thunderbolt ports and you have a Thunderbolt cable:

    If the same port isn't available on both machines, I don't think so.

  • Copy/Clone of boot drive

    Hi.
    I've just picked up a 1.5TB drive that I'm planning on sliding into Bay 1 to make it my new boot drive.
    Is there an OS X native way to clone my current boot drive so that I can just swap the drive over and I'm good to go?? or is CCC the only way to do it? I'd really like to make it as simple and painless as possible.
    Thanks

    superduper by far in my experience is the best.
    however, id be really wary about those Seagate 1.5TB drives right now.
    there seems to be alot of complaints on various PC and Mac forums that theyre unstable.
    not trying to scare ya, just thought id give a heads up!

  • File level clone of boot drive leaves extra folders, can I remove or hide?

    I made a file level drive clone with DiskUtility and then again with Carbon Copy Cloner (to confirm behavior) in preparation to go from 10.5.1 to 10.5.2 and found extra folders on the new copy.
    dev
    home
    net
    These folders are in addition to the usual app, users, library etc. They appear to behave like /etc and /var in that there is not a folder for them on a non running OS boot drive. They claim to be empty. Can they be deleted, hidden, turned invisible? Advice?
    Thanks.

    Kostas is correct. These folders are used by the system, and will be hidden from the users when the disk is running as the current system.

  • M92p SFF: Possible to add a 2.5" SSD boot drive in the 3.5" external card reader bay?

    I recently bought a M92p Small Form Factor with model number 2988-A5U. 
    Is it possible to to add an additional 2.5" SSD as a boot drive while retaining the 3.5" 1TB SATA as the data drive?
    I have searched many posts and datasheets on the internet but could't find an answer.

    The above specs. states that it supports 2 HDDs but I can't find another 3.5" or 2.5" internal HDD bay. 
    My thought is to put a 2.5" SSD into the 3.5" card reader bay. Is it feasible?

    I ordered a 2.5" General 2.5" SSD to 3.5" SATA Hard Disk Drive HDD caddy from Amazon that fit perfectly! General 2.5" SSD to 3.5" SATA HDD caddy It came with screws that fit the new SSD, and the caddy fit the blue plastic carrier that slides into the 3.5" bay. This caddy properly aligns the connectors off to the left side, supports up to 6GBs SATA, and is even hot swappable.

  • Using TM to backup multiple boot drives

    hello all,
    Relatively new to TM. I have new Mac Pro's each with 2 320 gig drives, each with a different OS configuration - 1 boot drive for Final Cut Pro, the other boot drive for Avid.
    I want to use TM to backup both of these drives whithin each OS. It seems that no matter what OS i am in, the backup is always made to a folder named the same thing "John Doe's Backup".
    Its seems though when i am in Boot drive 1 and backup TM names my back up the same things as when i am in Boot Drive 2.
    Does this make sense. Can anyone help? Do i just change the name of the computer on one of the boot drives?
    Any info would be most appreciated.
    Thanks!

    no, don't rename the drive. that will do nothing. rename the computer. boot from that drive, go to system preferences->sharing and change the name of the computer. that's the name that TM uses.
    but when i instruct time machine to "back up now" the backup that mounts is still named the same as my other boot drive.
    I don't understand what you mean by that.
    not sure where the backups.backupdb folder is located?
    the folder backups.backupdb is located on the backup drive and contains all TM backups. inside there should be folders with the names of the computers that are being backed up. if I understand yoursetup there should be two folders there with different names. however, there should normally be no reason for you to look inside that folder using finder.
    as you said there may be different folders whithin there but i don't know where to find those folders.
    thanks for any help you can provide.

  • Wondering if possible to use Windows XP SP1 with Boot Camp

    I just recently bought a mac a few days ago and i only have Windows XP SP1 cd. I was wondering if it was possible to run that instead of the Windows XP SP2 cd that it says in the requirements.

    Not directly; you need to slipstream SP2 or use Parallels Desktop.

  • HT3728 Is it possible to use Time Capsule as external hard drive instead of back-up?

    I wonder if it's possible.

    Possible, but if you place the only copy of the data that you have on the Time Capsule, you then have to figure out how to back up that data to another drive.
    Things may be simpler...with faster performance....if you add a USB or FireWire to your Mac, and then use the Time Machine to back up both the Mac and the hard drive to the Time Capsule.

  • Something annoying this way comes: using targeted disk mode for boot drive

    So, this should be doable, but it's not working. Can anyone explain why, or what I'm doing wrong?
    I have an Intel iMac, and an Intel MacBook - both are running Leopard. I temporarily want to use the iMac as the workstation, and the MacBook as the operating system hard disk. So, I put the MacBook in targeted disk mode, and connected it to the iMac via firewire 400. From the iMac, I option-booted to see the available boot disks. I then selected the MacBook's disk and clicked the arrow icon to boot. Once the iMac attempts booting, it displays the spinning cog on gray screen for longer than usual, then goes to a blue screen with an intermittent spinning cog. It seems to hang at this point.
    I've done this with PPC machines in the past, so I'm not sure what the deal his here. The only things I can think of that would be a problem, but really shouldn't be are: 1) the MacBook is running 10.5.2 (keeping it at v2 due to the CS3 issue) and the iMac is running 10.5.3. Also, the iMac is the 24" model - so perhaps there's a screen resolution issue...
    Any advice out there? THANK YOU!

    Hi
    Presumably the version of Leopard on both models are hardware specific? I would have thought extensions for device specific hardware such as graphics drivers etc on the Macbook would not include support for the 24" iMac. Bigger screen, more resolution support and a more powerful graphics card.
    If you were to go the other way I can imagine the driver included for the iMac 24' would probably support the smaller Macbook screen.
    I don't have any link or kbase that I can point at to prove this 'theory' because thats all it is - a theory. But it kind of makes sense to me and does explain the behaviour you see.

  • Is it possible to use more than one external hard drive for Time Machine backups?

    I want to use two hard drives for Time Machine backups.
    Bigger one keep at home and be sure it is safe.
    Second one (very small pocket size) keep with me for travels.
    I want to backup to both drives to be sure I can restore everywhere and to be sure if something bad happened with my small travel disk I can restore from home backup.
    Is there any problem with listed schema? Is it normal for Time Machine to handle backups for different drivers and keep everything consistent and smooth?

    I really need some help!  I have been using an Iomega NAS 1TB HD for the past year.  And I received an error message.  I believe I have ran out of memory on this drive.
    Then recently in the last couple of months I got a ReadyNAS Duo 2TB with 2TB RAID.  Should I switch my back ups to this one and delete the other back up file or keep the old back up image file on the Iomega?
    Can I transfer the old image back up to this new ReadyNAS? How do I do this?
    I appreciate any help.

    While the 2011 MBP's that shipped with Lion can be made to run Snow Leopard as long as you have the appropriate installer disk for 10.6.7 or later, yours is a 2012 MBP and most likely can never be made to run Snow Leopard because the necessary hardware support drivers (e.g., USB 3.0 support) simply aren't a part of that OS.

  • Warning! Using SuperDuper to clone from an HDD to an SSD might seriously da

    WARNING! USING SUPERDUPER TO CLONE FROM AN HDD TO AN SSD MIGHT SERIOUSLY DAMAGE THE HEALTH OF YOUR SSD!
    This is the new thread which I referred to when replying to:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2274972&start=0&tstart=0
    I used SuperDuper to clone from a VelociRaptor 300GB HDD to an OCZ Agility EX SLC SSD, with disastrous results.
    To save me the time of rewriting all the events please refer to the following emails and online submissions:
    (Biltan-Wales - 21 Dec 2009 - 11.02 GMT):-
    After reading several very favourable product reviews of the above SSD, I have just purchased one from Aria Technology Ltd., to use as a boot drive for my (early 2009) 8-Core 2.93GHz Intel Xeon Nehalem desktop workstation.
    Also, prior to purchase of an OCZ SSD, I posted a question on Apple's Discussions' Forum:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2263023&tstart=0
    From the response to this, and from reading several other threads regarding SSDs, I found that several Mac Pro owners are using OCZ SSDs as boot drives, and in some cases employing up to 3 of them.
    I received my Agility EX from Aria on 16th. December, and yesterday afternoon I decided to set up my boot drive and 4 drive RAID 0, as described in: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2263023&tstart=0
    First of all I used SuperDuper to clone from my VelociRaptor 300GB drive in Bay 1, to my original Apple (WD) 640GB drive in Bay 2.
    Then I removed the original Apple drive, and installed it in an ONNTO dataTale TQ-M12H external single enclosure, using a Firewire 800 interface connection. Next I selected this as my boot drive to check it would boot OK, restarted my system, and there was no problem.
    So my next step was to install the Agility EX, and another 3 VelociRaptor 300GB drives, in the Mac pro workstation.
    First, I reselected VelociRaptor 1 as my boot drive, so that I could use SuperDuper to clone to the Agility EX.
    The Agility EX was installed in the lower of the 2 optical bays, and was connected to the pre-wired SATA and power cable, and the VelociRaptors were placed in hard drive bays 2, 3, and 4.
    I then started up the Mac Pro, and there were 4 message boxes on the desktop, requesting that the drives should be initialised. So then I used Disk Utility to initialise the 4 drives. The SSD was named "Agility EX Boot", and the others "VelociRaptor 2", VelociRaptor 3, and VelociRaptor 4". The Mac system accepted all 4, and mounted desk top icons for each drive. I cannot remember the exact figure, but the Agility EX was listed as approx. 64GB in Disk Utility after its initialisation. All 4 VelociRaptors are shown as 300.07GB. All drives were formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled).
    The next stage was to use SuperDuper to clone from VelociRaptor 1 to the Agility EX Boot drive.
    Everything was fine until 28.00GB had been copied, and then nothing more would copy. The total to be cloned was just under 30GB, which should not have been a problem with a SSD disk capacity of approx. 64GB, but everything was frozen at that point - exactly 28.00GB!
    Eventually, my only option was to stop the process, and quit Super Duper.
    Then I restarted the system to try again, but this is where there is a real problem now!
    My system does not recognise the Agility EX at all now! Also, it is no longer listed in Disk Utility!
    The system does not even acknowledge its existence! It is not even shown on the desktop at start-up, whereas I thought that perhaps there might have been another message box requesting that it should be reinitialised.
    I tried disconnecting and reconnecting everything - all drives, interface connections, power cables etc., but to no avail!
    This morning I tried this again, but still I cannot get my system to even acknowledge the Agility EX, let alone list it!
    So at the moment I am still using VelociRaptor 1 as my boot drive, and, in fact, as my main drive, because I am reluctant to use it with the 3 other VelociRaptors as a 4 drive RAID 0 set up until I get this problem with the Agility EX resolved.
    (OCZ - 22 Dec 2009 - 18.29 GMT):-
    Cloning from a HDD to an SSD is very problematic. I strongly recommend against doing this. Instead you will want to just install normally onto the SSD. You can clone from SSD to SSD, or from HDD to HDD, but going from one to the other can cause issues.
    Try disconnecting the drive from the computer for an hour or so. This will allow all power in the drive to fully discharge. This is a way of resetting the drive that can usually recover the drive. Then plug the drive back in. Does the drive show up again?
    If so, delete the partition on the drive, then create a new partition and then install the OS onto it clean rather than clone the OS onto the drive. That should resolve the issues you are having.
    (Biltan-Wales - 23 Dec 2009 - 16.19 GMT):-
    Thank you for your advice.
    I have now disconnected the Agility EX SSD, and removed it from my Mac Pro's lower optical bay.
    As Christmas is imminent, and I will not be using my system very much over the next few days, I will leave the drive for 4 to 5 days to allow ample time for all the power to discharge.
    Then I will reconnect it, and I will let you know whether or not the drive is recognised by my system.
    I was not aware that cloning from a HDD to an SSD could be problematic. Several threads on the Apple Support Discussion Forum have recommended using SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner for this purpose. SuperDuper is the preferred option of most Forum members, whereas Lloyd Chambers (diglloyd.com), author of "macperformanceguide.com", uses Carbon Copy Cloner to clone his HDD boot drives to his Intel and Crucial SSDs.
    After the Agility EX had been set up as my system boot drive, my intention was to use SuperDuper to clone from it to my original Apple (WD) HDD, now in an external enclosure with Firewire 800 interface, and then use SuperDuper's Smart Update for regular backups, so that I always had an up to date spare boot drive for the OS and applications.
    The current VelociRaptor 1 boot drive would then be erased, and I would then use the Mac OS Disk Utility to create a 4 drive software RAID ) with the other 3 VelociRaptors, and this would be backed up using Time Machine to my existing WD My Book Studio Edition II 2TB External Hard Drive.
    Please correct me if I have misunderstood your advice, but are you saying that I should only use another SSD, and not my original Apple (WD) HDD, as my back-up external boot drive? I don't know of any other Mac users who are using SSDs for that purpose, possibly because of the prohibitive cost of doing so.
    I am more than happy to follow your advice to reinstall the Mac OS and my applications cleanly onto the Agility EX, and, in fact, I did exactly that with my first VelociRaptor HDD, before I had SuperDuper. However, that would still leave me with the problem of how to set up and maintain an external back-up system boot drive, without incurring the expense of another SSD. Any suggestions please?
    Anyway the most important matter is the existing problem, and I am hoping that following your advice will resolve this.
    I will contact you again early next week. In the meantime have a very enjoyable Christmas!
    (OCZ - 24 Dec 2009 - 00.25 GMT):-
    If the image is of an HDD and that image is then cloned onto an SSD that does tend to be problematic. I do not recommend doing this, as an image of the HDD somewhat regularly does fail to copy onto an SSD and still remain functional or fast.
    You can store the image file on any sort of drive. Storing the image file is fine, as that is just a digital file, so the storage medium doesn't matter. Its actually applying that image to a drive is where the problems often occur.
    You can image from a HDD to a HDD just fine, or an SSD to an SSD just fine, but going from one to the other is problematic enough that I recommend not doing this. Sometimes it works just fine, but other times it can fail catastrophically to the point of even bricking the drive. To error on the side of caution I recommend just going a clean install on the new SSD.
    Once you have that clean install done you can then take an image of that SSD and image on to other SSD's, or store the image on a HDD for backup purposes.
    (Biltan-Wales - 29 Dec 2009 - 13.16 GMT)
    Thank you for your last email.
    Further to your previous email, and my reply of 23/12/2009. this morning I reconnected the Agility EX SSD.
    However, unfortunately, the drive has not showed up again on my system. There is no icon for it on the desktop, nor is it listed in Disk utility.
    When I checked Serial-ATAS in my Mac Pro's System Profiler, all 6 Intel ICH10 AHCI are listed in the Serial-ATA Device Tree, but, whereas all my other drives are sub-listed, there is nothing underneath the ICH10 AHCI for the lower optical bay.
    As the drive has had 6 days to discharge and reset, it would appear that it has not recovered.
    Where do I go from here?
    I am still awaiting a reply from OCZ, but that is not surprising, because of the different time zones and the Christmas?New Year holiday period.
    In the meantime does anybody else have any ideas, please?

    Hi thanon,
    "So the SSD is not visible, not even in disk utility, even after a restart ?":-
    No.
    "Check the log of SuperDuper (Window-Show Log); warnings are in red, I think.":-
    This is a copy of the log, but it only refers to the original Mac (WD) drive as the Target Volume and it only lists the last Smart Update. There is no record of the original cloning to the same drive on 21st. December, nor of the interim Smart Updates. There is no record logged at all for the OCZ Agility EX SSD, despite the unsuccessful cloning attempt on 21st. December:-
