Back ups. Very important. Full system. Cheapest insurance you can buy. iCloud not really a full backup. Angele's preferred back up is to an external mobile drive. You can get them at
Amazon. She recommends Hitachi or Toro, USB 3.0 mobile. 2 TB.
Disk Utilities in your Utilities folder cand test and set up your Hard Drive.
First clear ( format) the new hard drive before you transfer.
The Software needed make a backup to the hard drive that she suggests are Carbon copy Cloner or Super Duper. Shirt pocket makes Super Duper. Be sure your copy is update. Super Duper provide Free updates for life. This will make a Bootable copy backup of your computer. Remember that iCloud is more for syncing not a backing up.
