I have a hard drive to install on my MacBook, can I take an image of my currently installed drive and put it on the new drive before physically installing the new drive? And if so, will I just turn my computer on after the install and everything will work as before (documents, apps, and whatnot)?

Forgot to add that the new hard drive is currently in an external enclosure, so can I just drag and drop everything over to the new drive?
