I have a early 2011 13'' MBP. Has a 500gb HD stock. I'm eying/planning on getting a Samsung 830 series 256gb drive (maybe the 128). I also plan on swapping out the optical drive and getting an omni bay to house the stock HD. My first question is; should I even remove the stock drive and put the new SSD in its place, or should I leave the stock drive there and put the SSD in the Optical drives place? Does it matter either way? I can still enable the SSD as the boot drive in the end right? Also, what is the best way to go about cloning my original HD? I'm a musician and use Ableton Live and I don't want to loose any of my recordings/Live sets. If putting the SSD in the stock HD position is the best procedure, can I just put the SSD in, and the original HD in the optibay and then do a clone upon boot from there?
