    I purchased a 1T WD Scorpio HD for my MBP. Any recommendation to copy the data from the old one to the new one. I tried to use CCC but this have a lots of command to back-up but I don't see anything to close the disk. Can someone let me know the best way to clone the new disk?

    Use CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper to make a 1:1 copy of you old HDD to the new HDD.

    With CCC you select the old HDD as SOURCE and the new, properly formatted* HDD as TARGET and click the CLONE button.

    Or is that usage too complicated?
