A family member has a new MBP on OS X 10.8.3.
The Macs we bought in 2002 came with CDs to enable the user to restore the OS X after some disaster.
Nothing like this seems to have come with the MBP.
I would like to be independent of the web sites etc which might provide the necessary data.
So I have a new LaCie 3TB external hard drive which I can use for periodic back up, and also for storing OS X etc.
I plan to use CarbonCopyCloner or superduper to do the copying of the entire hard disk contents.
Any ideas which of these packages is preferred for this task?
I assume either would work.
