Hi all

I have got a new PC custom built online for me. I asked for two HD's 80GB and 500GB on the basis that I would use the smaller of the two for backups. However the manufacturers have installed the OS on to 80GB drive. Is there an easy way to transfer everything across to the bigger drive or will I have to change the master slave config and install Vista again?

Thanks for any advice

Does not seem logical to have an 80gb drive to back up a master 500gb. I would leave as is with OS on 80gb and move your docs etc to the larger drive. I would also partition the larger drive so you have a seperate back up partition, the size depends on how much stuff you store of course.

Thanks Zeppelyn. You are quite right, it makes much more sense.
