I wish to take Mt Lion off my Mac Book Pro I have purchased a new Hard drive(1Tb) and need to set it up with Snow Lepard. Can this be done ?
Can you give the specs of your Mac please. If it came with ML factory installed then no, you cant revert to Snow Leopard.

If you are Replacing the original drive with a 1TB drive then switch out the drives and use your Snow Leopard Retail Upgrade disk to install Snow Leopard on that new drive.
But you will still need mto reinstall all the iLife Apps from the Original system Applications disc that came with your system originally and then reinstall all your programs.
As to your Files you can connect the old drive to the system with a SATA to USB adapter and Copy them off the old drive to the new one you installed in the system.
You Can NOT use a Time Machine backup made with Mt Lion to Restore the system with Snow Leopard installed. You can't use a Newer TM backup to restore to an Older version of OS X. Everything must be done, copied and reinstalled, manually on the older version of OS X.
