Hi All,

I just installed another Maxtor 300Gb internal drive and successfully cloned 110.65GB in 01:05:33 time. I have two questions if someone can be kind enough to answer.

1. Can I rename my 2 Internal Hardrives after I have completed the clone? Will it be alright if I can re-type their names from the Desktop and not affect future backups?

2. HD2 (original) has 87 items and the new HD has 91 items from what I have read on the bottom of the HD finder. Is this normal?

Thanks
David

You can rename the drive at any time before you boot -- it won't mess up the backup at all.

The item count in the Finder isn't really a good way to judge the volumes. Finder hides things sometimes, when the volume is the boot volume, and not when it's not. As long as you used "Backup - all files" and didn't get any errors, you should be just fine.
