Time Machine Observations - Upgrade HD (transfer TM data)

I decided to upgrade my Time Machine hard drive from 500GB to 1TB. After playing round and realizing it wasn't a simple copy, I checked and found SD does it. Awesome!

I stopped TM running, and proceeded as per the FAQ to copy my TM files. Only problem is, and this is purely the fault of the hardware ... 500GB is going to take about 24hrs to backup/transfer over FW/USB2.0

Ohh well, hopefully I won't have to do this again for a while. Next time I might see about using eSATA

p.s. I'm guessing after it's finished, it's a simple matter of renaming the drive to my original TM drive name, and setting TM to point to the new drive?
