View Full Version : Differing drive sizes (source vs. clone)

I'm trying to clone a 250gb startup drive onto a 500gb drive. The startup drive has less than 100gb used. I've tried several times today to clone, each time with different cloning times. Generally the same result, though: the cloned drive is about 400mb short compared to the source drive's used volume.

I'd read an earlier recent thread where you said maybe such results might be due to trash or temp files.

There are no trash files, but log has many instances of "Ignoring /private/var/tmp/...(numbers)"

Any ideas?

Thanks

Sure. It's temporary files and the like. 400MB short sounds about normal...
