    I've just upgraded my 1.83 C2D Macmini HDD from the stock 80gb HDD to a Seagate 500gb 7200rpm HDD, I renstalled OSX 10.5 now I want all my files and setings off my 80gb HDD

    Is the a way I can to do this using a USB HDD enclosure with my old 80gb HDD inside hooked up to my mini?

    Exactly. Just get an external enclosure, from newegg for 10 bucks, hook the drive up, and run migration assistant, or just drag n drop the files you want.

    I'd reinstall OS X after I got the enclosure, and when it asks if you have information on another mac or another volume on this mac to transfer, let it do it that way from the external.
