Migrating to a new larger hard drive in Vista

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Doug in Maryland, Aug 21, 2007.

  1. Hello all, I have installed a new 500GB Hard Drive on my PC and need to
    transfer Vista and all of my files and settings. The new HD is currently
    installed and formatted as the D drive, once I clone my C drive, I will swap
    them and use the old C drive for back-ups.

    Anyways, I need a program that will transfer the OS and all settings and
    make the D: drive bootable as the new C drive.

    Many Thanks
    Doug

    Good luck, but the harddrive maker either has one on their website or
    shipped a cd with all the stuff in the box.

    Acronis True Image will clone it fine. Make sure you have the latest
    version 10 and the latest build. This program is good for drive imaging
    backups as well. In lieu of that the drive should have come with a drive
    copy utility or you can download that from the drive manufacture's web site.
    Make sure after cloning you remove the old drive and have only the new drive
    in the system when it boots the first time.
