Move the content of drive C to a small partition?
Posted on 2006-10-26
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!
