    Hey GTers,
    I'd like to swap in a 500 gig eSATA HD into Macbook (2 gRAM, 160 gig HD, Leopard 10.5.5).

    I have one of those USB 2.0 to 3.5 or 2.5 inch or eSATA adaptor thingies - but no instructions. It's really easy to move files and such. But can I copy the entire drive including OS this way or will I have re-load Leopard?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    SuperDuper! will clone your Mac drive. The free version should do everything you need.

    Yup. SuperDuper free version is great.

    If you run into trouble, Dave gives excellent support for free ( thought its well worth $20 upgrade)

    Sure is nice have to bootable, 100% (for all practical purposes) clone of your drive. I keep 2 on external HD's.
