Drive swap

Sorry for the lull.  I spent the weekend on a big upgrade… put a huge media drive in the G5, and copied the existing media drive to it, thereby freeing up space both for new media projects and for the inevitable bloat of Leopard.

Copying about 200 GB from old to new media drive, via FireWire target mode

Complicating matters, I had bought the wrong kind of enclosure for the old 80 GB drive, so to do my copies, I had to put the G5 into FireWire target-disk mode and run the copy from the family’s mini.  So I was basically offline for most of Sunday.
