Hi.... just looking for a few recommendations on my need for OS upgrade to ML on my MacBook Pro Late 2008....Model 5,1.....my 500 gb drive is way full... and I want a fresh start... but it's my money maker....so I'll be reinstalling MAMP and all my local websites on working on as well as EVERYTHING else... but I think I should....I have a Terabyte drive to install... I realize my mail, browsing , and site issues will take some time.. but this is what I am thinking...clone the drive to an external ... and I have it recent on Time Machine on an other external as well...then replace the drive....since ML is download... I guess I have to install SNow Leopard .. which I have... then download ML... and upgrade...then I can start bringing data over....does this sound like a correct method.... I don't want to bring ALL my crap over that I have on the old drive... but maybe I'll wish I did once I get going... opinions please... used to be an easy call - but I am very busy now and my MBP is so integral in what I do - much harder...

Thanks!
