  7. 7. 1.4 Getting Latest Information The README file displayed during installation contains the latest information and the changes, which are not available at the time of releasing / printing this manual. Please read the information before you continue. Please visit out website at www.compuapps.com to receive information on latest software updates, if any. 1.5 Helpful Hints before you start • If you are installing a new hard drive, remember to read your hardware manual as well. It may contain specific information for installation and settings that may be required before DriveWizard can run completely. • Close all applications before running DriveWizard. This is important since many of DriveWizard functions will take a “picture” of your drive so that it can compare it later on for synchronization. It is not a requirement, but it is a good idea. 1.6 Installing DriveWizard in Mac X • Extract the tar file. This will extract an installer package & an executable for uninstall. • Double Click the installer package and follow as per the instructions displayed by the installer. • This will install DriveWizard for Mac and create an alias in the Desktop of the current user. 1.7 Uninstalling DriveWizard Double click the uninstall application in the installation path and follow as per the instructions to remove DriveWizard application. 7
  8. 8. 2. Features of DriveWizard DriveWizard is a simple hard drive management tool. DriveWizard helps to take the backup of a complete hard drive or selected volume(s) in the hard drive in simple steps. Additional Feature: Current version of DriveWizard application supports GUID partition on Intel based Mac systems. Partition table supported • GUID Partition Table • Apple Partition Map • Master Boot Record Overview of functions Here is a quick overview of the tabbed screens and their functions: System: Provides information about your system, user name, Macintosh OS version, Process information and allows you to launch Apple System Profiler. DriveUpgrade: DriveUpgrade helps to backup the complete data of a hard drive. Particularly this is very useful when one wants to move or copy the data of a smaller sized hard drive to a larger one. DriveUpgrade is a one button upgrade tool for creating volumes, formatting and copying your original data to a new drive. DriveUpgrade copies only the data in the used space to the new backup drive. DriveUpgrade expands the volume size in the new drive if the new drive is larger than the original drive. It is also possible to copy selected volume(s) of a hard drive to another hard drive. If your original drive has any HFS partition, DriveUpgrade automatically enhances the destination drive by converting the HFS as HFS+. DriveMirror: DriveMirror is a way of cloning the hard drive. In DriveMirror, Each sector of the original hard drive is copied to the new drive irrespective of whether the sector is used or not. The difference between DriveUpgrade and DriveMirror is that DriveUpgrade copies only the data of the used space whereas DriveMirror copies the data of the complete hard drive sector by sector. The backup drive created with DriveMirror will have volumes same as the original drive. The size of the volumes is not expanded as they are in DriveUpgrade. Volume Copy / Restore: Restore allows copying of data from one volume to another volume. If you are copying the data from one drive to other using Restore function, the new drive should have a volume to do restore. While the restore can copy data between two existing volumes, DriveUpgrade can create volumes automatically in a new drive and copy the data of the selected volume(s) or the data of all the volumes of the original drive. 8
  9. 9. About: This screen shows information about the version number of DriveWizard and contact information for CompuApps. Figure1 - Main Screen of DriveWizard 9
  10. 10. 3. System Screen System Screen provides the following information about your system. • User Name • Processor • Speed of the Processor • Size of the memory • Version of the Macintosh Operating System • A Button to launch Apple System Profiler Figure2 – DriveWizard System Page 10
  11. 11. 4. DriveUpgrade DriveUpgrade is a feature, designed for copying the data of a complete hard drive or selected volume(s) of a hard drive. Using DriveUpgrade, the backup of a hard drive can be done in few steps. DriveUpgrade automatically creates volumes in the backup drive(Destination drive) and then copies the data from each selected volume of the source drive to the corresponding volumes in the backup drive(Destination drive). 4.1 Applications of DriveUpgrade DriveUpgrade copies entire data of your existing hard drive to your new hard drive in a few simple steps without loosing single preferred setting or byte of data. DriveUpgrade is useful in the following situations: • When the existing hard drive is almost full and the user needs to copy all the data in the hard drive to a higher capacity brand new hard drive. It is possible to copy the data from higher capacity to lower capacity provided the size of the used space is less than the capacity of the lower capacity one. • If the Mac system is used for critical activity and the possibility of the downtime in case of hard drive failure should be eliminated, then it is better to have a backup drive by using DriveUpgrade. Using DriveWizard, the data of the existing hard drive can copied to a new backup drive so that in case of the original hard drive failure, the new hard drive can make the Mac system operative in few minutes. • If the user wants to copy the entire data of a particular volume in the hard drive to a new hard drive. DriveUpgrade is “Power-fail safe”. If a power or hardware failure occurs during the Upgrade operation, data will not be lost from the Source hard drive. Consequently, the user is not required to back-up the Source hard drive before copying. In the event of failure, simply start the operation again. 4.2 Types of DriveUpgrade DriveUpgrade provide two types of Upgrade: • Full Upgrade • Selective Volume Upgrade If the data of the entire hard drive needs to be copied to another hard drive, full upgrade is the right choice. If the data of the selected volume(s) in the hard drive only needs to be copied to the new drive, Selective Volume upgrade can be selected. 11
  12. 12. 4.3 Full Upgrade Full upgrade copies the entire data of a hard drive to another hard drive. The backup drive created using Full Upgrade will have volumes proportionately expanded. Let us take an example of an original 6 GB drive that has two volumes. The size of the first volume is 2 GB and the size of the other is 4 GB. If a 30 GB drive is used as a backup drive and full upgrade is done, then the 30 GB drive will have two volumes. The first volume size will be 10 GB and the size of the second volume will be 20 GB. In this case, if user wants to modify the size of the first volume in the backup drive as 15 GB, then the user needs to choose Selective Volume Upgrade and modify the size of the volume before starting the copying. Figure3 – DriveUpgrade Page If the original drive has any volume with Mac OS 9.X, the option “Install Mac OS 9 Driver in the Destination Drive” needs to be selected. Selecting this option prepares the destination drive to have Mac OS 9 Drivers so that it is possible to boot from the Mac OS 9.X from destination. 12
  13. 13. 4.4 How to do Full Upgrade • Launch DriveWizard and go to DriveUpgrade Page. • Select your original drive as source. • Select your new drive as destination. Make sure that you are not selecting incorrectly because the upgrade process is destructive and will erase all data on the Destination drive. • If the source drive has any bootable volume with Mac OS 9.x, then the option “Install Mac OS 9 Driver in the destination drive” needs to be clicked. • Click on DriveUpgrade button. • Now a dialog with the option for Full Upgrade and Selective Volume Upgrade will appear. Figure4 – Dialog box for Selecting Upgrade Type • Select Full Upgrade. • The Upgrade process will start and the new drive will be scanned for errors, volumes will be created and formatted. All the data from your old drive will be copied to your new drive. During the process the drive will be automatically fragmented. This may vary the time required to upgrade different drives. After the process is complete you can either remove your old drive or keep it for storage, backup or recovery or even as the primary boot drive. 4.5 Selective Volume Upgrade DriveUpgrade also allows volume upgrades. This means if the source hard drive has more than one volume, then one or more selected volume(s) can be upgraded to the new (backup) hard drive and those volumes will be expanded depends upon the new drive size. Also it is possible to define the size of the partitions in the target drive. 13
  14. 14. 4.6 How to do Selective Volume Upgrade • Launch DriveWizard and go to DriveUpgrade Page. • Select your original drive as source. • Select your new drive as destination. Make sure that you are not selecting incorrectly because the upgrade process is destructive and will erase all data on the Destination drive. • Click on DriveUpgrade button. • If the source drive has any bootable volume with Mac OS 9.x, then the option “Install Mac OS 9 Driver in the destination drive” needs to be clicked. • Now a dialog with the option for Full Upgrade and Selective Volume Upgrade will appear. Figure5 – Dialog box for Selecting Upgrade Type • Click on Selective Volume Upgrade and click on OK. • Now a Window will open to enable you to select the volume(s) you want to copy. • Select the Volumes you want to backup by clicking on the Select Button on Left and click on Next. Figure6 – Window listing Volumes in Source drive 14
  15. 15. • Now a window displaying the volumes that are about to be created in the destination drive is displayed. Figure7 – Window listing Selected Volumes • If you want to choose the size of the volume in the new drive, you can modify in this step. You can modify the size of any volume, by double clicking the size of the volume. You can continue this way and modify the size for all the volumes in this way. After doing all the modifications, click Continue to start the copying process. • If there is any free space in the destination drive, partition can be created with a required partition type Figure 8 – Options Dialog for creating Extra Partition. 15
  16. 16. • The Upgrade process will start and your new drive will be scanned for errors, volume is created and formatted. The data of selected volumes from your old drive will be copied to your new drive. After the process is complete you can either remove your old drive or storage, backup or recovery or even as the primary boot drive. 4.7 Drive Info This button provides information about all the hard drives attached with your Macintosh System. Information will include Model number and Serial no. of the hard drive, Size, volumes available in the drive. Figure9 –Drive Info Window 16
  17. 17. 5. DriveMirror DriveMirror is a quick and flexible way to safely clone or copy one drive to another, enabling quick imaging of one drive to another for backup purposes. With DriveMirror, there is an option to select the drives for mirroring. Each sector of the old hard drive is copied to the new drive in DriveMirror Process irrespective of whether it is used or not, while DriveUpgrade Process copies only the used Space of the drive. 5.1 How to Mirror a Drive • Launch DriveWizard and go to DriveMirror page. • Select a source drive (the drive you want to clone) by clicking on the drive in the source drive column and then select a destination drive (the drive you want to copy to) in the destination drive column. Figure10 – DriveMirror Page. Note: Remember that the destination drive must be equal or larger than the source drive. 17
  18. 18. • Click on the DriveMirror button. • After the process completed successfully, if the destination drive has free space, the following dialog will appear to enable creating extra partition for the remaining space. Figure11 – Options Dialog for creating Extra Partition. • This dialog will give option to choose the name and type of the extra partition. • Enter the name and select the volume type and click on Create button. • Now click on Start button to start the Mirror process. 5.2 Drive Info This option provides information about all the hard drives attached with your Macintosh System. Information includes Model number and Serial number of the hard drive, Size, volumes available in the drive. 6. Volume Copy / Restore Volume Copy / Restore is a quick and flexible way to copy the data of one volume to another volume. While DriveUpgrade creates volumes in a blank destination drive and copies the data of the original volume(s), Volume Copy / Restore requires an existing target volume. It is possible to copy the data of one volume to another volume of the same hard drive. The used space of the source volume is copied to the target volume. Note: Make sure that you are not selecting incorrectly because the Volume Copy / restore process is destructive and will erase all the data on the target volume and then starts copying the data of the source volume. Also it is not possible to have a HFS volume as the destination in Volume Copy / Restore. 18
  19. 19. 6.1 How to restore a volume • Launch DriveWizard and go to Volume Copy / Restore page. Figure12 – Volume Copy / Restore Page • Select a source volume (the volume you want to backup) and then select a destination volume (the target volume you want to copy to) in the destination field. Note: Remember that the destination volume must be equal or larger than the used size of the source volume. It is not possible to select your booted volume as destination since this would erase your ability to boot. • Click on the Volume Copy / Restore button to start the Restore process. 19
  20. 20. 7. DriveWizard - FAQ’s Q: How long I can use the evaluation version of DriveWizard? What will be difference between the evaluation version and the functional version of DriveWizard? A: Evaluation Copy of DriveWizard will expire normally after 30 days from the Installed Date. But if the time of the system is changed, the evaluation period will automatically expire. Backup Hard disk created using Evaluation version, will not be Usable after the 30 days from installed date. To continue using the backup hard disk, DriveWizard should be activated. If DriveWizard is activated before creating Backup Hard disk, then the backup hard disk can be used without activating in it.
