I purchased a new SSD upgrade for my MacBook Air as I was running low on free space. I'm having an issue here where I'm not sure how to move my OS X installation from my current drive to a new one. My usual solution is to either use Time Machine or CCC, but I have neither a Time Machine backup, nor can I physically copy my disk using CCC (since the MacBook Air SSD uses a unique connector). One of the things I considered is to use CCC and clone my boot drive to a USB external HDD and then boot from that drive and CCC back to the built-in drive after it's been upgraded. However I'm not sure how well this would work, mainly due to the next part: I already messed up two previous upgrades on other computers because I forgot to migrate the Lion Recovery partition, so for my MacBook Air, I'd like to avoid forgetting that, and migrate everything over. What's are folks thoughts on this?
