I am going to be upgrading a computer to have a bigger hard drive. Can anyone recommend any software (free if possible!) that will allow me to clone the old drive (which has Windows installed on it) onto the new one, and thus avoid having to reinstall everything?
Thanks for your reply. I haven't yet purchased the new drive. I'm looking at the possiblity. The problem is that the existing drive has some software on it which we no longer have the installation disks for, which is why I really don't want to have to do a fresh installation.
Download the trial version of Acronis True Image and clone your drive with it, it's up to you whether you buy it or not after that, I would recommend buying it as it allows you to continue to backup your drive as you add programs and personal files.
