    I have a Macbook what I got about a year ago with a 120 GB Hard Drive which has since filled up. I am planning on buying a 200 or 250 GB drive tomorrow and was wondering if using Carbon Copy Clone to my external hard drive to get a bootable copy then putting in the new hard drive in my macbook if I could use CCC to copy all my files/programs back to the new hard drive without having to re-install everything.

    Thanks

    Should work that's how I do backups if I ever need to repartition my iBook (for odd reasons *cough* linux to mess around with *cough*) so technically if its a UB it should work.
