Hi I currently have 40Gb HD in my PC which is almost full I would like to put a larger one in. Rather than put my OS (xp home) & programs onto the new HD from scratch is there a way of putting the new HD as a slave to the old one and transferring the whole drive across as is? If so can someone please advise of a program that will do this and where I might get it.... thanks in advance
If you are getting a higher performance drive (say 7200rpm, instead of a 5400 rpm, and possible with a larger cache) - then there is a big potential performance benefit in putting your new drive as the Master, with the OS and programs on it..
For total safety, Jester 2K II suggestion is a good one - don't wipe the data on the old drive until the new one has been OK for a couple of weeks.
