I just replaced a 60G HD with a 120GB HD in my PowerbookG4, I'm not sure how to proceed with my backup strategy.

I backup to an external firewire drive that has 7 partitions, and the partition that I've been backing the PowerbookG4 up to is now too small.

How does this strategy sound?

I have a second external firewire drive that I can set up with the correct size partitions.

I restore all the partitions to the new external firewire drive.

Gee - it looks easier than I thought it would be. Is that all?

Thanks,
Susan

That sounds right, Susan. Make sure you use the right partition scheme for your Mac!
