Just put 8gb of RAM in my mid 2009 17" macbook pro but I also have a 120gb SSD I want to put in. The problem is that my existing hard drive is 500gb and almost full. Here is what I want to do: Put the OS, applications, email, etc on the SSD. Put all the music, videos, pictures, etc on the 500gb. I already have an optical bay adapter for the 500gb hard drive. I also have a 500gb hard drive (almost full) with time machine and just did a backup on my hard drive. How should I do this? I was going to use a cloning program to clone the OS on the SSD, but how do I get my music and things on the 500gb once I wipe it? Won't time machine just want to restore the 500gb drive contents on to the SSD? Basically I want to keep the 500gb hard drive as it is, but remove the OS from it so the computer doesn't boot with that hard drive. Thanks for the help.
