I currently have two 250 gig drives striped into one partition on my dualie G5, and running Panther. I have all of my software installed and configured, all of my files saved, and I'm very happy. I also have a 500 gig firewire drive.
What is the best way to prepare for Tiger when it arrives? Which of the following scenerios would be best ...
- Perform an upgrade over the existing operating system
- Temporarily move all documents over to the firewire drive, format the internal hdd, install a fresh installation of Tiger, and reinstall all software
- Temporarily move all user accounts, the Applications and Library folders over to the firewire drive, format the internal hdd, install a fresh installation of Tiger, reinstall all software, and copy the Applications, Library folders, and user accounts back (compatibility problems?)
What program can I use to create a perfect image of the hard drive and store it on the external firewire drive as a "recovery disk"? (Should Tiger give me any problems, I may wish to revert back to my fully-working Panther installation). Can I use Carbon Copy Cloner? How do I deal with resource forks when copying / moving system files?
