Hello Experts!

Quick question, if I have a laptop with a hard drive that is running out of space...can I image it buy a NEW hard drive with larger amount of space and drop that image onto the NEW hard drive so I don't have to re-install everything all over again?

Laptop is a ThinkPad T440.

Thanks,
Mark

You can use Ghost, Acronis or like tools to take an image, and then put it back to a larger disk. This works.
