    Does anyone have any experience using this app?
    I'm about to switch hard drives and I have made a bootable copy of my existing hard drive using SuperDuper.
    When I switch drives I will need to install Leopard again and then transfer all of my old files from my external drive to my new internal drive.

    How do I do this with migration assistent?

    I have seen that when you install Leopard for the first time, it asks you if you want to tranfer an account/files from another source. Should I do this instead?

    Thanks

    Migration Assistant is great! Do a fresh install and use it when it ask if you want to migrate.

    Optionally, you could clone your new drive with the old one and then swap out drives, no need to use MA then.

    Thanks, I think I'll stick with MA though.
