Backing up entire HD on FWHD - Mac Applications & Software

What is the best way to backup the entire contents of my PBG4 HD in one fell swoop? I have a Lacie Firewire ext. HD and I would like to have a backup copy of my PB HD on one of the partitions. If I try to drag my PBHD icon to one of the partitions it will not directly transfer it. Is there a way to do this with Silverkeeper?...

    I don't know about SilverKeeper, but I would recommend
    CarbonCopyCloner. It's shareware and does a great job of making
    (bootable) backups of a disk or partition.

    Similar question (and probably the same answer): I plan to swap out the
    40 GB drive in my PBG4 for a 60 GB drive, putting the old 40 in an
    external FW case. What's the best way to do this and retain my current
    system: CCC or a complete Retrospect backup/restore? Either one more
    reliable? Faster?

    Swap the drives, boot from the external FireWire drive and use CCC to
    populate the new drive. Mush faster than a Retrospect full backup and
    restore.

    Thanks Tom. This is essentially what I did. I put the new drive in the
    external FW case (actually, just put it on the logic board but didn't
    close the case), and cloned my three volumes to three newly partitioned
    volumes on the new drive with CCC. Worked like a charm. After a bit of
    testing to make sure it would boot, I put the new drive in the PB and
    the old one in the external case.

    If anyone is wondering, the 60 GB 5400 rpm Toshiba drive (with 16 MB
    cache) is really very nice. Fast (tons faster than the 40 GB Travelstar
    that was in it from last year), much quieter.

    Do you notice any increase in fan activation or speed?

    The fan hasn't activated since I've had it installed (one day). And the
    ambident temperature is pretty hot here in New Mexico.

    Doing a DiskWarrior check on the other drive would usually cause the
    fan to come on. I've done checks on the smaller partitions of this new
    drive and the fan didn't come on. I'll do a check on the larger OS X
    partition and let you know what I find if you'll email me personally to
    remind me.
