Restoring apps when replacing the original hard drive with a SSD
I will be replacing the original hard drive in my Macbook with a SSD. I have a complete time machine backup of all my files to be restored after the swap. But is there a way to restore my non-Apple applications as well? I am most concerned with Microsoft Office and, secondly, with the Adobe apps. I don't have the disks or licensing information.
Also, is there anything I should be aware of when installing the OS on my new drive? I'm currently running OS X El Capitan 10.11.3
Is this a good question?
