What software program will clone to an external drive?

I know my hard drive is ready to go kapook on my desktop and there are programs I want to save and be able to boot from an external drive, so I bought an external drive to clone the desktop hard drive, but most of the software I have seen only clones to an internal drive.

It is nearly impossible to boot from external hard drive.  The main reason it that typically the computer need to have the OS loaded in order to support the external HD on the usb system.  My recommendation would be to return the external, purchase and internal and have a professional migrate your drive to the new one.

Mac error 2066


Hi Taylor
I have been dealing with Mac's for over 20 years. Bought my first in 1984. The point being..... even if I gave you the description of the 2066 error, it would mean very little to you. It doesn't help.
It's more important to know which model you have, what OS (Operating System) you are running and what you were doing or what program you are running when the fault occurs!
Problems like your having do crop up, especially on Laptops because the internal hard drive gets bumped and corrupts data.
Depending on what data gets corrupted as to what the Error is.
Bottom line is, the machine needs some service about every 1-2 years to eliminate problems creeping in.
But.... You have a Mac.... So It's pretty straight forward really!
I have been using the following method for years.... SO.....
The best advice I could give you is....
Purchase an external 3.5" Hard Drive.(more robust than 2.5" pocket drives) About 1 TerraByte should do.
If you have a FireWire Port on your Mac then get a Hard Drive with a FireWire connector on the back... its faster,
Otherwise use the USB Port. (USB 3 Better)
Use the DiskUtility Program to Format the External Drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled)...... Name the Drive something like "External Drive"........Now its ready for use.
Go on-line and download CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner)
(www.bombich.com/download.html)
Use this to make a Clone of your current Internal Hard Drive (Source in ccc) to the external Hard drive (Destination in ccc) This will take some time depending on size & content of your internal drive. Fifteen minutes to an hour.
Once completed, you should prove that the Clone is good by BOOTING from it. Restart & hold OPTION KEY DOWN & choose your new external drive. Once booted from external "Clone" you know for sure that the clone is a fully functional copy of your internal hard drive. Change the Desktop Picture in System Preferences so that it's different to your existing system. This is to avoid getting mixed up between Booted Systems (clones look the same)
The System Preferences / Startup Disk is also a useful tool here.
Now that you have a fully functional working bootable copy ("Clone") of your hard drive, you are SAFE from loosing any of your personal data. I make a new clone every few months to be Safe.
Now..... To rid yourself of all bugs & errors & faults and defragment your hard drive & update to a better (newer) version of the OS
ALL IN ONE HIT. and end up with a clean computer just like you originally bought. All you have to do is wipe your internal hard drive of everything. That is...ReFormat it with Disk Utility
(external drive unplugged for safety).
Then re INSTALL (takes about 20 minutes) a new clean (updated version) of the OSX. This is now free from Apple Downloads. e.g. OSX 9.1.2 (Maverics)
Then you can do one of 2 things.
Re enter all your details & passwords & Apple ID & Network details when prompted after re booting the new installed OSX OR
Choose Migration Assistant to put all of your stuff back in place like it was before you started. This usually works fine BUT it can put back faulty Apps etc that were causing problems before, so be choosy in what you put back (it allows you to select items)
Obviously it would be wise to have already downloaded the newest OSX for your Mac first. And even do a practice install on the external drive to see how the install process works.
FOR EXAMPLE
You could partition your new External Hard Drive into 2 Partitions of say 500GB each. One for your "CLONE" and one to experiment with the Install OSX Process.
You could even set up the New External Hard Drive with the New OSX e.g. OSX 9.1.2 (Maverics) first then "Migrate" all your old software back on to this drive. Boot the drive & test it for faults etc. Try for a couple of days. Then Re Clone it with CCC back to your Internal Hard Drive for permanent daily use.
It's up to you.... But having an external CLONE gives you so many advantages. You are using Apple Technology and ease of use here! So it's easy to do all this. Think yourself lucky, PC People would very rarely consider doing this with Windoz because it's just too difficult!
Good Luck
Trevor

HI... Can I clone my internal drive (which is just about full) to my Iomega 1TB external drive...? Thanks


http://www.runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm this program will allow you to clone your hard drive directly to your external, you can then expand the partition using 'disk management' which can be found typing it into the 'run' window from the start menu. this will erase the external drive however and i wouldnt recommend booting from it externally.

I want to put in new hard drive e1505


i am assuming that your current hard drive is working, you just want to replace it with a bigger one.

you will need two things 1) a way to connect your new hd to your system (such as an external usb enclosure)
2) the software to properly clone the disk image and put it onto a new drive

go onto google and search "clone hard drive" you will find numerous free (or free for 14 days so you can do this before they expire) programs that can do this

here a few links with more details (plus links to the software)

How do i clone my hard drive onto an external hard drive


Are you using Windows? If you are using Windows, go to Start => Programs => Accessories => System Tools => Backup. In the backup wizard that opens, choose which backup type you want and you can choose your backup destination. Choose your Seagate Expansion external drive for your backup location so that Windows can store an image of your current system into your external drive.

How do I transfer data from my hard drive to added external drive


you can this many different ways. The most straightforward is to go to the drive and select "folder and file options" in the view menu and selct "show hidden files", that way when you copy and paste you will get every single file. The other way is to use a program such as Acronis Tru Image and use the clone option. I am assuming that you want an image of your C:\ drive.

Having problems upgrading my laptop hard drive !!!


From what I gather basically you want to copy everything off of your 40GB and put it on the new 320GB and the install correct? Why don't you do a backup (Start>All programs>System Tools>Backup to the external 500GB drive. Install the new 320GB drive and then load the operating system from your operating system disc, then restore the data from the 500GB you backed up, or am I missing something.I know it is not as convenient as cloning but sounds like you may need to do it the old fashion way..there is no good reason that the cloning software would quit reading your disc unless it's some kind of "only get one chance and throw away software".
