How do I clone a Mac hard drive (10.1) to USB Flash drive?

Daniel July 16, 2010

I am trying to clone my G3 B & W hard drive onto a USB thumb drive. Drag and Drop doesn’t do it, even when booted from install disk.

    Use SuperDuper from It's a great disc-cloning application for the Mac, very easy to use and works well.

      FYI, the SupeDuper costs $27.95. On the other hand the CloneZilla is free but not as easy to use.

        The basic version of SuperDuper is free. I quote from the site: "Buy now to unlock scheduling, Smart Update (which saves a lot of time), Sandboxes, scripting and more!".

          My bad, misunderstood them. Thanks for heads up!

    You can use clonezilla to clone most operating systems including unix based macintosh drives. I wrote a tutorial a while back that can be found here >
