Best way to copy all files to new second hard drive.
Posted on 2004-04-18
I have installed and formatted a new hard drive. I want to copy all the contents of the old drive, including the OS (Windwos XP) to the new one and make it bootable and primary. Windows has assigned drive letter "F" and "G" to the two partitions on the new drive. My old drive is "C" and two DVD drives are "D" and "E". Should I change the drive letters?
I have Partition Magic 8.0 installed, but when investigating using it to copy the partition it tells me the new drive may not be bootable. That would be bad. I also need to do this right away because of an impending project.
