How to upgrade my external drive



I have a 1TB drive doing Time Machine and also storing my Aperture data. It is getting full, and I have bought a 3TB drive to replace it.

How do I make Time Machine and Aperture both continue as before when i copy everything over?

It should, but as always, better safe than sorry.

Once you've "migrated" everything over to the new drive, disconnect the old drive and ensure that you can do two things with the new drive (before erasing or re-purposing the old drive):

1) Browse and restore files from the Time Machine backup using the Time Machine interface
2) Open and verify that your Aperture database works fine

After that, it should be good to go!
