    Since my first attempt to upgrade to a bigger HD failed (wouldn't let me login) I plan on upgrading my current 120GB HD to Leopard, and then use Time Machine to back up on my External. Then I will put in the new 250GB HD, install Leopard on that also and then recover using time machine.

    My question is whether or not this would work. Would I run into any problems? I makes perfect sense to me.

    Please keep us posted...

    Your logic seems sound. I would like to know how it works out, because I thought about taking this same route myself one of these days...

    That's an interesting idea. I, too, would be interested in how this turns out. Part of the functionality is to restore from a failed drive, so I don't see why it wouldn't work unless the two drives have to be identical in size. After looking at the very minimalistic options for Time Machine, however, I'm curious how doing a full system restore is done anyway... Does anyone know?
