    Hey guys, right now I have a 250GB hard drive that I want to replace with a 1TB drive that just arrived. What is the best way to get the info onto the new disk and then have the computer recognize it as the startup drive when I yank the other one out?

    Should I raid them together (duplicative drives) and then take out the old 250GB?

    (I have drives in the three other bays, but those can come out to help the install)

    The RAID utility in OS X Disk Utility wouldn't be any better?
