We're using GHOST.
You can migrate from a small to a bigger disk/partition, etc...

This is a link to a 21 day FULL free demo. You can take an image of your current drive and restore it to the new drive or you can use the copy feature. Download and install it and I am sure you will be able to figure it out. The interface is very straight forward.

Good Luck!
