Am I stuck risking the loss of files while upgrading?
I need to upgrade my iMAC from OS X 10.2.8 to 10.4. However I'm afraid I'll lose pics, music, documents...etc.
I opted for an external hard drive to back up these things. I bought a WD 250GB passport on a recommendation that the MAC would recognize it as a mass storage device. Now i've learned I may need to reformat the drive. NTFS3g may work but I need the OS 10.4. FAT32 is read only, so i've read..(no pun intended)
