Title:

Looking for advice on transferring data to new hard drive

Text:

Greetings.

I have the tools and parts on order.

I am replacing the annoyingly loud CPU fan, and, in hopes of improving performance, a new hard drive.

I have found very helpful information on the mechanicals of the project.  Now I am looking for some advice on the best way to transfer the HD data to the new HD.

I use Time Machine.

I could list out what I was thinking doing but, I thought it would be easier for some helpful folks to throw some information at me and see if it sticks.

Since this is "asking for advice", I'm not looking for any guarantees.

Thanks!
