All of your applications and files will be exactly like your present hard drive.iMac 24" 2009'1, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 40G Firelite Smartdisk, 8250 HP printer. 3ea, 3G Shuffles and 1ea, 5G Nano.

It asked if I wanted to reformat the drive because it comes formatted for the PC running some/any version of the Windows operating system.
So i guess my question is do I need to install the WD software. When I eject it, it just comes back the next time my iMac starts back up.iMac 3.06 Aluminum 21.5 inch,MacBook Pro, White iPhone3GS, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Everything Mac is an addiction to me.

Were I the OP I would either use SuperDuper or CCC or upgrade to Snow Leopard and then use Time Machine.
