Mac: Replacing a Mid 2010 iMac HDD with an SSD

My mid 2010 model iMac has given me a few issues over the years. First it was my HDD dying, luckily I was able to recover most of the data from it. I say most because I've been unable to find some files in my backups (it's important to sudo that copy command as anything that isn't readable by the user who mounted the drive won't be copied). Apple replaced my HDD and everything was fine until I decided to update to Yosemite.
