OS cloning and backup

I just got a bigger hard drive, and I wanna install it so I can burn DVDs. The problem is, I cant find my OS disks. Is there a way to clone an os from one of my other hDDs? (and I really do own the software, just disorganized).

cloning drives

I've used Carbon Copy Cloner to make HD clones, works a treat. There are other utils too, CCC is just the one I've used.

In theory, Disk Utility can do it too, but it's never worked just right fo me.

I use Carbon Copy Cloner to make backups or new disks all the time. If you use it to make a new disk to switch to, the one thing that's hum bug is having to fix the permissions on the new drive for a lot of folders and files via File>Get Info>Ownership and Permissions>Details. Maybe there's a way to avoid that, I don't know. CCC has a forum on their website where info about that may be found, but I'm too lazy to search it.

I'd rather use SuperDuper!

It's faster than CCC and works better imho and it's freeware, too
