Problems with my MacBook Pro
I picked up my MacBook Pro with it's second new motherboard on Friday. The previous new motherboard was installed in July. The last time I lost my hard drive too.
I'm getting an external USB drive and am going to back everything up with Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper.
That'll give me a total backup of everything.
The State of Backup and Cloning Tools under Mac OS X.
Problem tracking since Friday:
Photoshop - Hang
Firefox - Hang
Empty Trash - Hang
No Internet activity - Cable Modem reboot
Mac- Hard Reset/Reboot
No External drives in Finder
Will not power on
CMD OPTION CTRL POWER, Let Go - Powers on
Your thoughts on PowerBook backup solutions? Thanks.
Replies I got on twiter:
joshpaul - plan on FW to take advantage of TimeMachine in the future
Lan Bui - Firewire is much faster for backups. I use SuperDuper! well worth the money!
David Weinberger - backupo to firewire, if only because it has a cooler name. (also, faster transfer rates, last time i looked)
