Upgrading to bigger hard drive. How can i transfer all my data to include OS?
Posted on 2003-10-25
I recently purchased a Maxtor 160gb hard drive to replace my old 40Gig. How can i transfer all my data and programs to the new hard drive including my Win XP Pro OS? I dont want to reinstall everything again and download updates for all the programs i have, especially Windows. It would be a waste of time. I've heard that you can clone a hard drive or something to that effect. Is that true, and if so do i need a third party program?. Either way, i just want to move everything to my new hard drive with no problems/bugs that will haunt me in the future. Thanks.
