Do I have to have an erased and clean HD to make a bootable copy of my Macbook Pro drive? I have a large drive I'm currently using for movies and would like it to also house a bootable copy of my macbook.

Possible?
Thanks

You need to partition the drive into two volumes, one for the movies (etc) and one for the bootable backup.
