    Can I perform a time machine backup of my mbp running snow leopard and then restore it on my retina mbp running ML? Will this transfer my apps, such as office, lotus notes, parallels, etc?
    Thanks

    Check out OmniDiskSweeper - it will provide such a list of usage that you're looking for.

    Yes, just start Migration Assistant on the rMBP and point it to the Time Machine backup. It will move everything over to the new machine.
