Not a good day.
The iBook G3.
Is not so happy.
In terms of not booting up.
The HD is failing.
So by some miracle I got it going and tried to do a copy.
Note to people who make software for copying gigabytes of stuff:
moving gigs around takes a long time
tell me if you are actually copying stuff
or you're stuck
because otherwise I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FVCK YOU'RE DOING
I tried this restore trick, but it doesn't work, it doesn't accept the partition as a destination.
I tried Carbon Copy Cloner, but it doesn't tell me if it's stuck or just copying slowly and diligently.
I'm going to try SuperDuper now.
UPDATE: info from SuperDuper is looking good.
If I can get everything backed up, I will run DiskWarrior, but not before.
