Copied, Partitioned, And Now I'm Screwed....

Great app, by the way- I think it was me who made a stupid mistake.....

I have a 120 gig external FW hard drive, and a 60 gig iBook. I had about 40 gigs of stuff on the external, and about 40 gigs on the ibook. The ibook however had two partitions, 48 for OSX and about 7 for Linux. I wanted to erase the 7 gig partition, so I used the "Backup All Files", selected "Copy Newer Files..." and Copied the ibook to the external. I then booted from the external and partitioned the ibook. It was then (stupid, stupid me) I realized that I was sitting with 80 gigs of information on the external, and no way (apparent) to copy it back over. What would be my best solution at the moment? ( I only want the original 40 gigs, if at all possible) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Eeesh, so you've copied both the 40 on the iBook and 40 on the external to the same partition?

OK: as long as you know what the existing 40 was, create a copy script. In the first tab, enter a description (might I suggest "This script is designed to un-screw me." ). In the 2nd, include "Backup - all files". And, in the 3rd, add the folders that you want to IGNORE (not copy) to the partitioned iBook.

Once that's done, save to an appropriate filename and use that, with Smart Update, to copy back to the iBook. I think that'll work.

Yeah, definitely very Armenian, but an Armenian who doesn't know much Armenian!

Thanks again.

How much is a soul worth these days? More or less than a kidney?
