Making a practice copy of the system disk

Now you're ready to make a practice copy of the system disk. When you've completed this tutorial, you should repeat this procedure to make backup copies of the system disk, the system tools disk, and your application disks. You should always work with backup copies, keeping the originals in a safe place in case the backup copy is lost or damaged.

Follow these steps to make a practice copy of the system disk:

1. Drag the System.Disk icon on top of the Practice icon.
When the pointer reaches the Practice icon, that icon becomes highlighted, as shown in Figure 2-25. When you release the mouse button, the icon turns white again.
