    Upgrade MacBook HD Issue

    I found what I thought was a nice write up on how to upgrade your harddrive in a MacBook. I followed all instructions. Created a backup boot-able drive on my external drive. Checked to see if I could boot from it and I can--I'm typing this message from that drive. I'm using Superduper!. When I try to copy all the files from the external drive I keep getting the same message.

    | 06:52:10 PM | Error | SDCopy: Error copying /private/var/db/receipts/com.apple.pkg.iTunesX.bom to /Volumes/Untitled 1/private/var/db/receipts/com.apple.pkg.iTunesX.bom of type 8 due to error 5: Input/output error

    Seems most folks who followed the instructions from the website had no problem. I even tried "restore" in Disk Utility and it stops with an error and doesn't say what it is. Any idea on how I can make this work on my own?

    Thanks--Bill

    Bill, instead of copying all the files from the external drive, run Superduper and pretend the external is the original drive that you want to back up, now to the new blank internal. Don't use finder copy. Make sure you allow it to fix permissions and check the box "Copy ACLs from [boot drive name]" under options.

    If you have already tried this, my apologies.

    Got it done finally. I sent the log to Shirt Pocket and they said to delete the file that was trying to be copied. After that, the backup went smoothly. On another issue, for some reason all contents in itunes had a duplicate. I manually deleted duplicates in movies and tv shows, and have done alot of it in music, but there are 100's to 1000 or more to delete. I'm happy that the new drive is installed and I don't have to drag around the external drive when watching movies or tv shows.

    Do a Google search on this... there are easy ways to do it non-manually.

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    I did try some from a google search. One would only allow 10 deletes of the duplicates, another 30. This was their free version. If you know of one that doesn't cost too much that is reliable I'd like to know about it.
