I have two hard drives. One drive is C the other is D. What I would like to do is move the content of drive C which is where the operating system is to a smaller partition located on drive D thus freeing drive C to handle just data storage. Drive D would then become drive C the system drive.

My first problem is how do I take the contents of drive C and move it to drive D and have it be seen, drive D as a bootable device? Yes I know that drive D would become drive C.

My first thoughts are to make the partition on drive C. the same size as the partition located on drive D using Partition Magic. This way I would be able to move the partition over to drive D making it a bootable device. Oh I would like to use Acronis 10 to do the job.

Am I making any sense here? Any comments and or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Create your ghost image to cd or dvd or hopefully network, repartition the system how you want, then reapply the ghost image to the correctly sized partition.
