So I tried searching and couldn't find too much recent advice so anyone that has done this recently some advice would be greatly appreciated. I got a new Momentus XT to put in my mid 2010 MBP and I am wondering if I should create a restore disc and do a brand new fresh install on the hard drive and then transfer all my music and files manually or if I am safe Cloning it. Back when I was a windows guy I would always do a fresh install and it would usually run a little faster than before. I'm guessing Lion is a bit more stable. Also if I clone what program so you guys suggest, carboncopy? superduper? others? Anything else to look out for while to keep an eye out for while throwing the new drive in there? Thanks for the help guys.
