    My old MBP died but the hard drive is still good the drive is 256GB do I put the old hard drive in an enclosure than pretty much boot up off that drive format the internal on new one using disk utility than clone the external to the internal ?

    I second the motion for getting CCC. Great and useful app.

    Thanks I do have CCC on the old MBP so my sequence of events is correct in the OP?
