    I've got a 3 year old Mac Pro with 4 drive bays. I've added 3 new drives over the last 3 years increasing capacity (lots of movies and photos). My boot drive is only 500 GB and is close to full. I want to move everything from my old boot drive to a new boot drive of larger capacity (and ultimately replace the old boot drive with a new larger drive). I can't figure out how to move OS X from the old boot drive to the new drive. Any help would be appreciated.

    Take out one of the HDs and put the new drive in it. Then simply use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the contents on the current drive to the new drive

    Thats perfect. Thanks. Cloning was the concept I wasn't aware of.
