Hello

I tried asking about Cloning to upgrade Mac OSx drives before.,

I want to upgrade my iMac's internal 250GB drive to this 750GB drive i got and i will put the 750GB inside a G4 tower and do this over ethernet.

Will this work using SuperDuper and how do i do this step by step?

Some of the terms (sandbox, copy files etc) used by SD in the manual confuse me and i want to be 100% sure it is a clone of my iMac's internal drive that will be identical and contain all the authorizations to my computer's unique ethernet ID.

So i ask about doing this right before i open my iMac and break anything, it does not seem is to open.

Please Advise

Cheers

You can't really do this over the 'net. You'll want to back up directly to the drive... as "Backup - all files". It will NOT necessarily work with authorized applications, since they don't all tie to the ethernet ID: some use your disk's identifier... but they can almost all be reauthorized...

Not Internet , Ethernet...

Can you confirm :)

Understood. I meant "network", sorry about that.
