    I got my Optibay last week and now I am just waiting for my SSD to arrive :D. My main question is how do I make the switch to 2 hard drives? I have 2 partitions on my original hard drive, one for OSX and one for Bootcamp. I would like to keep boot camp on the original drive and use the SSD in the optibay just for OSX, whats the best way to do this?
    How can I transfer all my settings and software to the new SSD, do I just boot from the normal drive and restore through time machine or CCC? And how would I get the optibay to be the main drive and boot from automatically?

    Use carbon copy cloner to copy all the data from the OsX partition to your new SSD. Its pretty easy.
