    I just added a new Sata 3gb/s hard drive to my computer with 500gb of space.
    The original hard drive that I installed Vista to was much smaller and now is
    out of space. I can barely even update and will soon not even be able to do
    that. I was wondering if their was a way to copy my Vista installation from
    one hard drive to the other. My main concern is keeping all of my installed
    programs, games etc.
    any help is extremely appreciated Thanx

    You could image the drive, replace with much larger drive, then restore
    image to the new much larger drive.
    If you have Vista Business or Ultimate, you can use the Vista Backup program
    and select the full backup type of backup.
