Comments Reply 1 of 6 kickaha Posts: 8,760member March 15, 2005 3:15PM You mean like Disk Utility to create the disk image, and Carbon Copy Cloner to copy it? Reply 2 of 6 o-mac Posts: 777member March 15, 2005 3:38PM Don't those two apps have some problems?Is there anything else out there?? Reply 3 of 6 kickaha Posts: 8,760member March 15, 2005 4:10PM Like what sort of problems? Reply 4 of 6 buonrotto Posts: 6,368member March 15, 2005 8:19PM My Maxtor HD came with Retrospect Express. That app has this feature that will clone my iMac's internal HD to a partition on the external drive by touching a button on it. Is that the kind of thing you're talking about? I imagine Retrospect Express could do what you say, though frankly, if it didn't come with the HD, I would just use Disk Utility and Carbon Copy cloner for the task. They're supposed to be better apps. Reply 5 of 6 outsider Posts: 6,008member March 15, 2005 8:36PM Disk Utility to create and restore for me. Reply 6 of 6 the general Posts: 649member March 16, 2005 7:33AM I have used carbon copy express to make clones like ghost does, and never a problem, where-as at work, we use ghost, and it seems to have more problems Sign In or Register to comment.
