Mijn probleem

My hard drive in my mid 2010 MacBook Pro began failing and caused the computer to slow to a crawl. The disk utility foun the errors but couldn't repair them. Since it was a 250gb drive I decided I'd just go ahead and upgrade to the solid state drive.

Mijn oplossing

Installing the drive itself is very straight forward. My trouble didn't begin until I tried to clone the drive. Using the disk utility I attempted to clone from the 250 to the 1tb. It failed every time. Then I tried to use the internet recovery to install mavericks on the new drive but that was a no go. It'd generate an error and fail every time. Eventually I had to download a copy from the App Store and make a bootable thumb drive to get it to install. Once it was installed I was able to copy my files and settings from the old drive using the mavericks import utility during setup. Now it's faster and I didn't lose a single file or setting.

Mijn advies

1) Have a time machine backup. Can't stress that enough

2) get a longer USB cable for the drive adapter that comes in the kit. My drive adapter broke because of the short cable twisting against the adapter and I had to buy a external hdd shell.
