I have a MacBook Air with one SSD that unfortunately is formatted as journaled, case-sensitive.

I have an external HDD that I copied my whole start volume bootable to with the tool SuperDuper and it works fine.

When I format the SSD to the correct filesystem (journaled, not case-sensitive) it successfully formats it, but when I copy the data back with SuperDuper it transfers the old file system, too, rendering it useless.

How can I have the SSD with the system on it and the new filesystem?


If you are familiar at all with Terminal you could try reading up on rsync and using that to copy stuff selectively over from your backup drive.
