Thanks very much for the helpful info Stranger. When I restore my mac thru time machine with the new hard drive, won't it just restore my old admin account that is associated with the old hard drive? I don't really want to have two admin accounts. I just want to keep it where I have one like I do now since I'm the only one that uses this computer.
