What's the easiest solution for upgrading my OS drive for more capacity?
Posted on 2009-04-02
I am getting ready to update the drive that my Operating System is on and am wondering what the best way to go about it is.
I was thinking I would make an image of the entire disc and burn it to DVD's but I don't know much about the process. I was hoping someone could provide some insight and maybe recommend a good Disc Image program.
Or should I be going about this in a completely different direction?
Here's a few system specs to get started, let me know if anything else is needed:
Pentium 4 2.66GHz
Intel 82845 Chipset
Radeon 9250 Graphics
Current Drive is a Western Digital WDC WD800BB-98DKAO
It's an IDE interface and I'd most likely be going with another IDE. I'm not even sure if I have SATA capability but I'm not too concerned with it. This cpu isn't extremely high-performance by any means and it's used to do pretty basic tasks.
The current drive has an OS partition of about 15GB and a storage partition of about 55GB. I would like to continue to keep my program files separate from my storage files on the new drive.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
