Hi all
Couldn't find this in the FAQs
i have just bought a seagate 80gig drive to replace the 40 gig in my sons PC.
I want to remove the 40gig and put it into another machine.
The 40 is partitioned into 2 so want to save all the files and operating system if i can.
I would like to know the procedure for swapping everything on to the 80 without having to reinstall everything .
Can you help ?

Seagate have a utility that will copy the contents of your old hard drive to the new one. If it did not come with your drive check their website for a download. The Seagate website has lots of good information and it would pay you to check it out.
