    So, I am just posting to make sure I am doing it right. From all my reading this is what I have come up with.

    I know I am probably missing other threads with this info, so if you have a link that would be fine too!

    I am planning on upgrading my 2010 Mini's HDD to a faster drive. Now, I am thinking instead of re-installing everything and setting it all back up that I will use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to clone the old drive the new one. Then pull the old drive and install the new one.

    A couple of questions...

    1. Is there a problem cloning the disk if is is coming from a 320gb to a 500gb drive? (IE...driver errors or such...)

    2. The cloned disk be bootable...right?

    3. Will I have any issues with the serials for CS5 and FCP....etc...?

    1. No

    2. Of course

    3. You may have to re-enter the serial but it should work just fine.
