    just bought a new hard drive from OWC 500 GB 7200rpm, want to install it in my 15in unibody macbook pro june 2009. Bought the kit that came w/ the inclosure so i can turn my old drive into an external.

    Here's my question
    is there a way i can move all my data to my new hard drive before putting it into the computer, so once its in its ready to go? I don't have the leopard disc w/ me. I left it at home and didn't bring it back to school w/ me.

    Install new drive in the enclosure. Use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to copy your current hard drive over to the new one. Remove new drive, put into laptop. Put old drive into enclosure.

    I haven't done that, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work.
