    I was searching the forums and could not find the answer I was looking for. Here is what I am thinking of doing. First replace the Optical drive (superdrive is superdead) in my 2007 macbook with a SSD, probably a 128-240GBish, the current internal drive is a 5400rpm 500GB. I want to install the OS and a couple of the main programs I use on the SSD. The main question is what will the the time capsule do when trying to restore to the (smaller GB )SSD if the backup image (currently around 400 GB) is from the 500GB. Is there a better way to go about this? The HDD has about 100GB available. If there is a forum on this let me know. Thanks.

    Thought I would give this a bump... Apple support on the issue is not clear. Still have now found another forums thread that is helpful yet.
