hi.
I am about to update my mac with a new, larger HDD, and I just want to make a copy of the one I have. I have Time Machine backups.

when I do the installation of the new OS X, I dont want to reinstall all applications individually.
is it possible, just to move all applications from the Time Machine?

When I used migration assistant I'd say 99% of my apps came over fine - even big apps like Photoshop. A couple required I re-enter my license key, but that was it.
