(1) Buy a good HDD, for excample, Lidl special offer 250GB £69 click here

(2) Buy an external 3.5" HDD enclsoure and put the new HDD into it to act as an external HDD, you can buy enclosure from many places, for example, directusbstore click here

(3) Buy Acronis True Image click here and install on your PC

(4) Plug your "external HDD" run True Image and use "CLONE" function to clone your old HDD to new HDD, you may need to set what partition you need.

(5) Swap old HDD with new HDD, make sure jumper setting is correct

(6) Job done, you now also have an external HDD (box +old HDD) for backup stuff
