I made successful full copies just a few days ago, so that's encouraging! Does the following procedure sound reasonable? (I find myself wishing for a cross between a question mark and a colon!)

1) Make full copy.
2) Apply Drive 10 to internal HD.
3) In case of problems, full-copy back from FW drive to internal drive.
