    I have searched everywhere and can't get a straight forward answer to this question:

    I just installed Leopard on a new HD (WD 320gb 5400) that I am going to install into my MBP (Santa Rosa, 4gb RAM). I have all original software (iLife, etc) on DVD. How do I transfer my music, pictures, and documents ONLY. I don't want to "clone" the drive or anything like that. I just want to transfer the files to the new, clean install of Leopard. Please help, want to re-format my other drive and put it into an enclosure for external back-up...

    Thanks

    I've used iBackup in the past to only backup my user data.

    Still if you put your old hard drive in an external enclosure you should be able to run Migration Assistant and pull the data off of it.

    old suggestion would be to use CDs or an iPod on disk mode.
