    Hi

    I did this with few Macbook and the best way to not missing any file is using software like Superduper or Carbon Copy.

    When you buy the new SSD make sure to buy a cable USB to Sata with it (average price 9 euro) so you can copy your old HHD to your new one before to starting your installation.
    After cloning your HDD you can test your SSD and eventually boatload trough Usb before you start your installation so you will be sure that everything works fine.

    The replacement is very easy and quick as well is worth all the money time and effort.

    I hope that will help if you have any more question let me know and I'll see if I can help

    I want to ask after using the super duper even my installation on the HDD will be on SSD or it just copies just the files from the old HDD?

    You'll have an EXACT copy of the hard drive, i.e. a clone...
