I am about to purchase a new Intel imac, but first I must clone my present iMac G4 (running Tiger). I am copying to a new OWC Mercury Elite Pro 320GB (firewire 400/800). I have just upgraded my registered copy of SuperDuper to 2.5. I plan to use this external hard drive to back up my new computer (Time Machine). The question I have is should I partition the OWC external hard drive and clone my iMac G4 to a separate partition? Thereby using the rest of the drive as a back up drive for the new Intel imac. By the way, I plan on using the partition function of the Disc Repair application which was native to my version of Tiger.
Thanks for your help!
