    MacBook Pro 13"
    Copying data from HDD
    I've got my new Samsung 640GB HDD sitting here waiting to be fitted when 10.7/Lion is released. When I fit this and install the OS, if I put my current 160GB HDD into my HDD Docking Station will I be able to access the files on it?

    I'd like to install the new HDD, OS and Applications and then copy my personal data over that way.

    Yes.

    Sorry about the long, technical answer, but you will ask these tricky questions!

    Thanks guys.

    I've not properly set up or installed all my apps yet, happy to do a clean install of Lion and set everything up with that.
