Western Digital - Free Agent Ext Drive

Hi,

I have a Western Digital - Free Agent 320gb external hard drive and I'm wondering if it is compatible with SuperDuper?. Does anyone here have a similar setup? or have used WD in backup and restore situations with Superduper?

Thanks

Do you mean a Seagate FreeAgent or a Western Digital MyBook?

If it's a firewire drive that plays well with OS X, it should work fine for being able to boot from a backup. I've used a variety of external drives with no problems. (Be sure the partition map type is correct for your machine.)

USB drives also work well, but unless Leopard has changed things, I don't believe that one can boot from a USB drive. I'm not up on this, so caveat lector.

I just replaced a failed LaCie Big Disk (1TB) with a 1TB WD MyBook ("Studio Edition"). Two partitions are for rotating backups, and the third big partition is mirrored with second LaCie Big Disk. I've booted off of the backup partitions no problem (just testing). I inserted the big partition into the degraded RAID mirror just fine.

Sorry I can't answer your specific question; just thought I'd relay my experience.
