Hard drive replacement MacBook


Looking to replace a 120 GB hard drive on a 4 year-old MacBook Pro. Your step by step instructions seem straightforward.

Question. Hope this doesn't sound dumb. I assume I back up my hard drive first using an ext hard drive and Time Machine?

PS. heard about you from the Apple Store in Pittsburgh

You'll need either an external hard drive enclosure to move the data or an adapter to hook the drive up with. iFixit sells this one: Universal Drive Adapter

Use Disk Utilities to format the drive and then Time Machine to do the backup.
