Ok, I figured out time machine and backed up on a separate external drive. I'm thinking of trying the time machine way. I think i'm going to format the new 750 GB drive in the enclosure (as chscag suggested) then install it into my mac and boot up using my snow leopard disk and install the Snow Leopard OS X onto the new drive. Then I will try to move the data from the time machine backup on the external drive onto the new internal drive. I'm not too familiar with using the disk utility program. Can you guys tell me which options to choose and what steps to take in the disk utility program to format the 750 GB drive that is in the enclosure?
