Chapter 34. Maintaining Your System > Copying Your Hard Drive

Copying Your Hard Drive

This software, called Disk Utility, is located in the Utilities folder within the Applications folder of your hard drive. Disk Utility is mainly used to fix file permission discrepancies and hard drive errors, but it also includes a slick tool that is useful for creating an exact duplicate of your hard drive.
