Hi- I have a late 2009 27" iMac with a failing 1TB Seagate hard drive. The machine is out of warranty and not eligible for the recall. I have the drive backed up on TM. Currently running Snow Leopard. My plan for fixing it is to replace the internal drive with a SSD and move all data to an external drive. The current drive has about 500GB worth of stuff on it, which is greater than the new internal drive I plan on installing can hold. My question is, can I manually select what parts of the TM backup go where, ie. system files/apps go on the SSD and documents, iPhoto/iTunes libraries, etc... go to the external drive? Or am I going to have to restore everything to a large external drive, reinstall OS X, then thrift the parts I don't need from the external drive. My hope is the current drive will last long enough for me to export my libraries, etc... to the external drive and avoid the TM backup. The number of applications I use is fairly limited so a complete reload would not be that big an ordeal. Any advice in the best approach to take here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
