If you just want to get your data from the HDD to the SSD, yes, TM can do that just fine. Just do a full backup then install the SSD and option key boot to the TM disk. That will give you a recovery screen where you can use Disk Utility to format the SSD then click restore to move everything from the TM drive to the new SSD.I used a software cloning application SuperDuper to clone a HDD to a SSD and it failed twice. Can i clone using Time Machine, and if it completes will the results be faulty or lacking features. I am using their free download.
