I currently have a imac running snow leopard and also have a spare hard drive. I would like to upgrade my imac to mountain lion but I also have some legacy programs that are not yet mountain lion friendly.


Is it possible to copy my snow leopard system and my legacy programs to my external drive. I don't have the install disk for snow leopard as my computer originally came with leopard and I upgraded later to snow leopard. Would it be possible to install leopard instead?


I can't clone the entire hard drive with superduper as the external drive doesn't have sufficient space. I just need to transfer the snow leopard system and several programs and data.


Any suggestions?
