Best way to transfer data from old Hard Drive to new one ???
Posted on 2004-03-23
I have a failing hard drive with some critical data on it. I still have access to this drive so I need to find the best way to transfer the data on this old one to a new one that's on the way (Dell is replacing this old hard drive as it's still under warranty). I'm running XP Home on this PC and I have a DVD burner and a CD Burner.
The data I have on this old drive is enough to fill up a few DVD (at 4.3 GB each). I know there are programs out there for this, but not sure which one would be the easiest and best for my needs.
I'm a little worried to just copy the data manually as I don't want to forget something on the old drive and then have it lost forever (Dell will be taking the old Hard Drive back).
What would you guys (and gals) suggest.
Thanks in advance...
