Starting over


I have a sandbox running on my 74GB Raptor boot drive, and the normal volume is on an internal 400GB drive. My system has gradually been falling apart, and it's time to do a complete reinstall. Too many small, seemingly unrelated glitches to track down.

So I just want to make sure I set it up correctly again. Would I wipe out both drives, then reinstall OS X on the 400GB drive, update, etc. and then create a sandbox from that fresh install on the 74GB boot drive?

Also, has anyone else out there had trouble with the sandbox configuration? I've had some really bizarre issues, particularly with the Energy Saver control panel, that don't respond to normal troubleshooting steps. I've been using Macs for 20 years, so I'm not exactly a novice. But I wondered if the problems could be related to the way I've set up my drives (i.e. using a sandbox). Are there any known issues to be aware of?

Thanks for your help,
