    Hey everyone, looking for some "How To". In June I purchased an early 2009 MBP (15", 2.4ghz, 250gb HD, 4gb RAM with express card slot). So I have been doing some searches on here and other places and it looks like I am going to upgrade my HD with a WD Scorpio Blue 500GB and also get an external 1 TB drive. I will be getting both at the same time and was wondering what the best process would be to get everything going. I am assuming I would clone my existing drive to the 1TB external, then replace my existing hard drive with the Scorpio and then copy all files back. Just looking for advice on the best way to handle this, best programs to use etc. This is something I haven't really attempted before and I have read about various programs on here such as Carbon Copy.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    There is a guy who usually comes in and posts a comprehensive guide for this sort of thing. In the meantime I suggest searching this or the accessories sub forum for some more information.

    Good luck.
