I have purchased a SSD which I would like to swap out with my current HDD. I have been reading, and everyone seems to recommend doing a fresh install of my OS and such, as opposed to copying my current HDD bit for bit using 'Carbon Copy Cloner'.

If I do perform a fresh install, how will I get just my applications back onto my Mac. Specifically those which require activation from servers and such.

OR

Seeing as I will be using both hard drives in my Mac when I recieve an optical bay adapter, is there any way to only copy my OS and apps, NOT my files to my new SSD?

I apologize if this may be confuing to read, but thank you very much!
