Hi, I was trying to make a backup from my MacBook Pro with still the old system 10.5.8. Making a Disk Image on an external USB2 harddrive takes ages, it took me 52 hours until I had a power outage, to find a damaged disk image of my harddrive of 754 MB (I threw it away). My harddrive is totally full, from 297.7 GB I have only 1.7GB space. Ideally I would like to have a fully accessible backup, so I can throw away files on my computer and finally update to X Lion, which I want to do for a year but never got around to because deadlines are chasing each other. I have now a Lacie Mac Formatted (journaled) 1 TB harddrive.

What is the best way for me to do this quickly? A good answer with the most practical options available would be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), western digital external harddrive
