Booting from a new SATA drive

  briandy 20:32 15 Jan 2008

I have a 300GB SATA hard disk and am about to add a second 500GB SATA drive. Is there an easy way of transferring all the files on to the new drive and making it the 'C' drive and boot the system from it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You need to use some kind of ghosting software like norton ghost

I bought version 10 of this software in July last year and for a while it worked as expected. In November it started crashing every time I tried to use it. I contacted the help desk and spent a considerable amount of time providing them with diagnostic information. This included downloading version 11 and trying that but it contained exactly the same error.

Despite repeated assurances they have not provided a solution and recently have stopped responding to my e-mails.

As we know nothing is foolproof,but im betting most here at PCA will recommend Acronis TI.

Its not let me down to date,then again every pc is different.
