Cloning Hard Drive Using Acronis

  midnighter 13:17 05 Feb 2009

About to swap primary OS (c) hardrives on my pc. Have backed up the existing C Drive using Acronis. Anyone walk me through ( after I have taken old hard drive out and replaced it with the newone) How I reinstall everything using Acronis?. I have a back up on an external HDD of the original installtion that I intend to use.

In Acronis there is a separate method to "Clone" a drive in this situation. It is not the same as doing a backup of "My Computer". Which version of Acronis have you got?

click here and download the User Guide in PDF Format. Chapter 14 covers Transferring the System To A New Disk. I suggest you read it completely first.
