    Recently, I added a second harddrive to my Mac Pro. As it happens, it is larger than the primary harddrive.

    What I would like to do is use the larger harddrive as my Mac OS disk, while using boot camp to set the smaller one up with windows.

    Question: when I set up the larger one with 10.6, do I have to use the install disks, or can I just copy all of the files from the old disk to the new? Are there any hidden files that I need that might get left behind?

    Use CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper to copy/clone to the other HDD.
    WinClone can be used to save the Windows partition if necessary.
