View Full Version : 2 Powerbooks to 2 partitions on one drive

02-16-2006, 07:12 PM

I want to back up both my powerbooks to a single external drive. The drive is a bootable FW drive large enough to hold all of the data and I am willing to partition the drive.

Are there any drawbacks?

I have inferred (but I am uncertain and haven't tested it) that only one of the partitions on the external drive will be bootable.

If only 1 partition is bootable, is it easy enough to boot from partition 1 and restore partition 2 to a powerbook.

Thanks for your help

No, no drawbacks, other than having to connect it to each machine when you want to back up, and both partitions will be bootable...

And great response time on the reply. I don't know if I need the advanced features or not, but if I end up using the app, I will definitely pay the reg fee. I've paid more for apps, but have never received a forum reply in the first two minutes.
