  The Disaster-Free Upgrade to Mac OS X -- Part 2
Subject:   Great article... but one unexpected problem

I followed the instructions in this article carefully this past weekend when upgrading to OS X and overall, it was a good experience.


One extra bit of advice, though is to make sure that you TEST your backup device a few times before doing this process. After my OS X install, I went to copy my old disk image back to the second partition and found that OS X would freeze if I asked it to copy more than about 20 files at a a time. Same problem appears when booting from the 9 folder on the X partition. Not sure if the problem is X-related or hardware in nature, but it sure put a damper on my enjoyment of X over the weekend.


Luckily, the upgrade is still "disaster-free" as I can still run all of my files from the backup drive, and can copy them one at a time. It may just be a long night tonight.


THanks for a good article.


By the way, am I the only person using X who feels that iCab's beta is better than Omniweb?
