Confused on how to transfer data from old HDD to new replacement?
I am getting my moms old macbook pro from June 2009 and I'm going to use it for school.
The hard drive is getting old and is about to fail so I want to replace it but am confused on how to get the boot files and everything to the new drive.
Could I just buy an external drive and a new replacement drive and use Carbon Copy Cloner to move everything from the old hard drive to the external one and then install the new replacement hard drive and use the external drive to boot up the computer and then copy all of the files from the external to the new hard drive in the MBP?
Sorry I am a bit confused with this stuff.
