OS X :: Any Cloning Software Allow To Only Run Backup Program?

Jul 31, 2009

1) Have a bootable CD that only runs the backup program (OSX not running)
2) Create an image copy of my hard drive
3) Be able to browse through the image file when I am working in OSX so that I can pick out individual files if needed

This is how I use Acronis TruImage on my Windows systems. For whatever reason, I don't trust backups made while the operating system is running. Maybe this comes from my old days trying to backup servers with ArcServe and having to buy a special addon to help you backup open files. I think it's just cleaner if I run the backup from a "dos" environment. I think my Acronis TruImage disc boots PC-DOS and runs only the TruImage software.

Applications :: Unable To Find Backup Program / Customizable Program For Backup?

May 28, 2009

I'm looking for an app that will allow me to specify which folders I want to copy to my external drive, updating existing files within it and copying new ones.

I don't want to backup settings, my whole harddrive nor make a bootable backup. Just something to backup what I want to backup and where.

Not sure if Time Machine can do that, but it wants me to reformat my external before I can even find out..and considering how much is on there, I really don't want to have to remove that all elsewhere while doing so. [Don't think I could anyway, none of my internal drives have that much space.]

So, does anyone know of a relatively painless backup app that could do simply what I want? Doesn't sound all that complicated in comparison to some of the more convoluted backup apps I keep finding.

Windows On Mac :: Cloning Or Backup/restore Of OSX/Win7 HDD?

Jan 12, 2011

I want to copy/clone my current HDD onto another (both 500GB, but a different make/model). Usually a OSX re-install and TM restore does the trick, but this one has the OSX HFS+ and a smaller NTFS Win7 partition. I assume cloning will still let both OSes run, or is this just a bag of hurt and I need to reinstall everything...They're both in a Mid 2010 MBP (with optibay).

Windows On Mac :: BootCamp Backup (Cloning / Image) Restore

Sep 17, 2010

I would like to "Backup", "Clone" or create an "Image" or whatever else people call it of my bootcamp installation. I know I can create an "Image" of bootcamp via disk utility but how would I restore it? Would I first delete the bootcamp partition and then re-create a bootcamp partition and then restore? Or would I just restore? Will the end result be what I am expecting, i.e., my Win 7 install right back to the perfect state of when I created the image?

Right now, let's say my Windows 7 install got smoked one day for whatever reason (it is windows) and I needed to re-install. Me personally, I would just go into Bootcamp Assistant, delete the Windows partition then create a new one and then get installing. Unfortunately installing and updating takes hours and that is what I am trying to avoid.

Hardware :: Cloning Time Capsule Drive And Increase Backup Volume?

Jun 3, 2010

I have a time Capsule that is nearly filled. It is giving me error messages each night it tries to backup saying that there is too much on my computer to backup. So, I went out and bought a 4TB Western Digital external drive. I want to copy all the data from the time capsule onto the new hard drive (so I don't loose any of my older backups) and then have the time capsule use that same WD drive as my new backup. I have seen there are ways to copy from time machine drives to new external USB drives, but I was under the impression time machine uses a different kind of backup method than a time capsule.

Is that true? Can someone point me to a place that explains how exactly I would copy the drive in the time capsule. (I understand I need to use Disk Utility, but I cant get the TC drive to show up in that program). Also, is there a way to instruct time capsule to stop using its own internal drive and use the drive connected to its USB for the backups? I think Apple's answer is no, but I dont know if thats really the case or not.

MacBook Pro :: How To Backup And Then Reinstall A Program

Jan 17, 2010

My MPB is having issues (it doesn't actually go to sleep, so when i come to use it, the battery is totally drained) and i want to backup everything before I take it into AppleCare, but I'm worried about some of my programs...

for example: I have Senuti on my computer (0.50.01). When I downloaded it, it was a free program. Now, the version that is out cost around $18 (i think). The old version I am using works fine for me, and I downloaded it free and legally--I don't want the new version.

Software :: Time Machine Unable To Perform Backup / Backup Is Too Large For Backup Volume

Oct 26, 2008

I am getting the following error from Time Machine when doing my first backup. The startup disk being backed up, and the TM disk are both the same size.

Macintosh HD: 465.44 (total); 393.99 (free); 71.45 (free)
Time Machine: 465.44 (total); 465.29 (free)

The Time Machine error is: Quote:

"This backup is too large for the backup volume. The backup requires 472.7 GB but only 465.3 GB are available." why would this be? Other disks are excluded from the backup, and Time Machine is telling me that it needs more space than it actually needs. What should I do?

OS X :: Formatting And Cloning New Hdd

Jan 3, 2009

I got a new hard drive and put it in an external enclosure. When i plug it in, i get a notice saying that the new device is not readable. what i'm trying to do is clone my old drive to the new one using SuperDuper, then take the new drive out of the external enclosure and put it in my macbook. someone told me i need to set up your new drive with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with a GUID partition map scheme before you try to clone to it as clones don't work with the PC format/partition map that they normally come with new.

OS X :: Cloning HDD - Boot Up From That Hdd

Feb 27, 2009

I have an ibook g4 1.33ghz (mid 05) laptop and have bout a bigger harddrive for it. I am in the process of cloning my hard drive. I have gotten as far as putting the clone on the new hard drive via a hard drive USB enclosure. I know now that g4's cannot boot from this kind of enclosure. So my question is if I were to just install the new hard drive into my ibook will it just boot up from that disk now or will it not work right?

OS X :: Cloning Old CD On To Fresh New One

May 4, 2009

i recently decided to dust off my old PC to play some of the games that I have been feeling nostalgic for and have run into a nit of a problem. One of the game discs is in pretty bad shape due to years of use and abuse and won't install the game. out of curiosity I threw the disc into my MPB's higher quality drive and it can see right through all the scratches and such. So I was wondering how to copy the old disc on to a fresh new one and have it still be usable by the old XP box.

MacBook Pro :: Cloning Old SSD To New SSD On I7 ?

May 3, 2012

I recently transferred or am in the process of transferring my old info from a Mac Pro Tower to a new 2.8 i7 MBP. Previously, I had a 40GB SSD drive with my OS and Apps and it ran perfectly fine, however I needed more space. I ended up buying a Crucial M4 128GB SSD and upgraded the RAM to 16GB and have since had problems with the Crucial. I just now updated the firmware but that didn't seem to fix a thing.So what I've done is initialized the M4 SSD w/ Disk Utility via Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and I've done a clone using Time Machine (it worked but it was really slow and would occasionally lag for 30 seconds out of nowhere with a beach ball) and I've also done a clone using Carbon Copy and that was ridiculously slow (I would get a beach ball every 5-10 seconds and just opening a new window in the finder would cause a beach ball).

I don't know what could be the problem. I've since made a bootable SD card with both Leopard and Lion, thinking I'd just install a brand new OS onto the new SSD, but those aren't working for some reason.So yes, I'm currently using the previous and well-working 40GB SSD, but I'm lost

Windows On Mac :: Program Not Running On Bootcamp - This Program Cannot Run On A Computer With Less Than 64 Megabytes Of Ram

Aug 24, 2009

I have a 15-inch MacBook Pro, the new unibody ones, and I installed Windows XP, using BootCamp.

I made it a 29 or so GB partition, so it used the FAT32 formatting.

The program I tried to install is the eyeQ speed reading program, and the laptop exceeds every single one of the recommended requirements.

The problem comes when I am attempting to install the program, I keep getting an error message in which it says "This program cannot run on a computer with less than 64 megabytes of ram."

Last time I checked my laptop has 4 GB of ram, and it says the same thing when I checked it while running Windows XP.

My only guess, which I made while typing this, was that I should have formatted the Windows partition using NTSF.

MacBook Pro :: Is SSD Cloning Good

Dec 5, 2010

I am upgrading my MBP first gen unibody to an SSD drive. I just read that we should not clone an existing HDD to a SSD. The author did not give a reason why. So, my question is: will cloning my current HDD to a new SSD (using Super Duper) adversely affect the SSD performance? My initial plan for upgrading before reading this article was to clone my HDD to a new SSD in an enclosure (using Super Duper), then install the SSD. I thought this would save me a lot of effort restoring everything from scratch.
