    I have a newly purchased Mac Mini and on the advice from other threads, I successfully installed an OWS 240 GB SDD inside the Mac Mini (and kept the original 500 gb HD as a second internal drive)

    My goal now is to clone the contents of the original hard drive onto the SSD (basically just Mountain Lion and Adobe CS apps now), make the SSD the bootable drive, and clean out the original hard drive for extra storage.

    I've searched, apple help, and this forum, but I can't find clear instructions on how to do this. Where can I find out how to do this?

    (Be kind, I'm a noob)

    Use SuperDuper to clone the drive across to the SSD.
    Check my YouTube videos for a tutorial on how to use SuperDuper.
