    Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere. I want to replace my hard drive in my macbook. I have the entire drive backed up with carbon copy cloner on an external drive. After I install my new drive, is it just a matter of installing OS X on the new drive, and then selecting "restore" with carbon copy? Or should I just restore my home folder?
    Thanks for any replies.

    Use "Migration Assistant" to restore to the cloned copy of the hard drive. I wouldn't use that programs restore feature. But it's up to you on how you want to do it. It should work either way.
