For cloning my internal HD onto an external drive, I use Intego's Personal Backup. My internal HD has indeed died after I made a clone the previous day, so I could work off the external drive w/o problems for a couple of weeks. When my new drive arrived and was installed, I just cloned the external drive back to the internal one with the software. Saved my life.
Another option, which I actually use for duplicating external music and photo drive partitions on to another external drive, is Carbon Copy Cloner. Recommended. You end up w/ an exact copy of your partition in the destination drive, byte by byte.
Greetings. I need to organize various kinds of files, photo-, movie, HD, documents, etc.. across several external drives and on my MBP. I am wondering if anyone can suggest a good program for helping me find, eliminate and organize duplicates etc?
also back up and restore?
