    I am installing a new ssd in my buddys 13" macbook pro tonight which is currently running 10.6.8. I backed up using time machine. I was going to install ML on the new SSD. I would like to be able to restore from time machine after the clean install is done. Can I use the Snow Leopard time machine to get the files onto the new SSD running Mountain Lion? Thanks for the help guys!

    Don't think so, if you make a backup in 10.6 and try to restore it on ML it will reverse everything AFAIK.

    You can use the migration assistant to transfer the backed up data to the new computer.
