Creating bootable backup with non-new hard drive?
I am about to upgrade my 120 GB macbook hard drive to a 500 GB hard drive I recently purchased. I was going to follow these instructions: http://www.macinstruct.com/node/130 and create a bootable drive on a WD fire-wire drive I have.
My question is that the WD fire-wire drive (1 TB) already has about 500 GB of media files on it, so can I still create a bootable back up to it without destroying these files?
Is this a good question?
