I do have one question for you now.
Where are your backups?
If you haven't backed up any of your personal files, like music, video, photos, documents, etc, what are you going to do if this hard drive fails, either during the transfer process, or before?
If you already have backups, then please disregard this, and you're doing well. I ask though because we see so many desperate pleas for help when users have lost everything when their hard drive fails, and want their photos back.
Hi, I hope you can give me some pointers. I am running XP service pack 3, and, as a musician, and also an avid game player, have found my paltry 80 gigabyte harddrive is at its limits. I need a bigger C drive, but to cure lost weekends I would like to find a way to literally transfer everything from my original C drive to a new, much bigger one, including the whole operating system, so that it will start when booted as though nothing had ever happened! I basically need to avoid a whole OS restore alongside the countless music software, plugins etc. Is there any advice out there as to how to go about this? Any help will be massively appreciated.
