I have just recently ordered Snow Leopard from apple to upgrade my iMac to 10.6 due to my new ipod and Iphone being unable to sync with iTunes.
Now after ordering i have run into a few worries,
-the first being that i am currently running Tiger (10.4.11) and i am not aware of any back-up solutions, can you recommend any?
-Second is that i did not get iLife or iWork, what i understand it that those are applications such as iPhoto and iMovie etc. What i want to know if that if i upgrade to SL will the applications that i have currently remain there with me being able to access them? Or do i need to back-up the applications as well? Even then will i be able to run them on SL?
-Third is that i have run into phrases such as "Clean Install", and not being used to upgrading i am not very aware of what this means, should i worry about this?
Thanks for that-
Is iLife necessary to the upgrade, will the applications i currently have still be there when i install snow leopard?
"format/at-least-erase the partition before install instead of in-place upgrade". With 10.4 you may be better off just erasing the partition first and saving yourself the troubled upgrade."
Im not quite sure what you mean by this. Does this mean i have to wipe the hard drive before installation?
Sorry about the "solved question thing" accidental..
