    Specs:
    17" Macbook Pro Unibody OS X SL
    After installing a new harddrive...
    I discovered that after installing a new harddrive, and using carbon copy cloner, Leopard ran VERY slowly. The problem? Permissions! I ran a check for my permissions, and it seemed every permission on my OS was invalid. SO to anyone who have used carbon copy or any other clone program with a new hard drive, RUN DISK UTILITIES!!! It'll save your life mate.

    Thanks for the info as I will be replacing my hard drive and using carbon copy cloner soon.

    Is all resolved?
