    I am starting to run up against space problems with my 250GB system drive in my mac pro. I ordered a 750GB Seagate to replace it, along with an enclosure. If I want all of my stuff from the 250GB, is it as easy as cloning it onto the 750GB one using something like SuperDuper! and then swapping them out physically?

    Thanks in advance.

    You could also just keep the 250GB drive in there for your system and apps, add the 750GB drive in a second bay for your actual data/storage, and keep on truckin' no problem.

    My other bays are already filled with drives. I figured that this would be the easiest way.

    just like you asked it. install it, duper it, run it.

    i would recommend running through your current drive and doing general house cleaning before though. remove anything/apps you don't need, empty the trash in iphoto, and empty the dock trash. superduper will check the drive before running the clone, so no need. works great!
