Replacing current HD with a larger one
Posted on 2003-02-18
Ok guys, I'm trying to replace my current 30 gig drive, with a new 75 gig. Both are Western Digital, and I have successfully installed the second daisy-chained to the first, and I am using WinXP.
My problem, is that I want to copy the old drive to the new one. Using the tools provided by Western Digital, I tried to do a drive copy, but it has given me an error during the last 5 percent, the last 4 times I've tried it. CHKDSK and the scanner provided by WD both say no errors with my active disk, yet it does not copy completely.
I want to avod re-installing everything, hence the drive copy option. Also, I want to convert from FAT32 to NTFS in the process, and stop using my 30gig altogether.
What are my options to follow through on this?
