    I just managed to successfully make an upgrade from 3 to 5 on snow leopard. Installation worked fine! BUT...
    I backed up my windows xp before converting to 5 (just in case) and I was hoping i could store the the backup folder on a separate hard drive, but apparently not.
    i could not choose any external device as a backup location and now I cannot copy the backup folder anywhere else ("operation cannot be completed because an unexpected error ocurred (error code 0)"), which makes me stuck with 30 gig on my local hard drive... Is there a way to change the location of the backup folder?
