Morning all.

:help:

My daughters pc has a 20gb Hdd, running xp pro. I'd like to install a bigger Hdd that I have spare.

Is there a way to clone her current drive onto the replacement so that I don't have to reinstall all her apps etc?
Obviously I need the whole thing mirror imaged? registry etc
can this be done without 3rd party software

What preperation work would the larger drive need?
Any advice woud be greatly appreciated
thanks
Grant

All of the drive manufacturers have software to do this. In Seagate's case their DiscWizard software is a version of Acronis True Image.
