I know this has been asked a billion times but with every new release of OSX the best practiced solution seems to differ. And there are all sorts for differing suggestions on the net. It's the usual story, I have an old MacBook Pro with a full 130GB drive which Im going to replace with a 500GB Hitachi Travelstar. I think I have three options: Use my Time Machine drive to restore the Mac data (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1177) and WinClone to restore BootCamp data. Use Disk Utility from the install CD to simply clone one drive to another (http://www.macinstruct.com/node/147) via a USB-SATA cable and resize the new drives partitions to 500GB once complete (will this work?) Simply reinstall everything from scratch. Im going to try Disk Utility because I need my Boot Camp (for .NET programming) unless anyone has any other suggestions. I realise this might take a week to copy 130GB via USB to the new drive but Im not in a rush. Thanks for your advice.
