 Backing Up and Cloning OS X

Lots of details about backing up your OS X disk.

"There are two types of filesystem disk formats we need to worry about, HFS+, which is the default OS X filesystem format, and UFS, which is the "normal" unix file system format. All of the standard unix utilities are designed to cope with UFS. They will work on HFS+, but they will break what are called "resource forks" because this is a unique structure to HFS+. "
