The snipping tool is found in Start>All Programs>Accessories and if used regualrly simply right click to pin on the raskbar. That will come in handy!
Once you have the drive situated the Windows backup tool will by default look at the first partition on the destination drive for seeing the image created and stored there. You may want to take that into consideration since you split your new drive up into G(first thought) and E partitions.
Once you point the backup tool to a specific partition the next time that will be seen if you start the process manually since Windows keeps a record of each much like your browser history in a sense until another backup is designated to another location.
Now it will depend on what you are planning as far as backing up data or a new Windows install on the new drive. For a complete image easy to restore to the first the Windows system image is quite reliable. Here I use Acronis for a second in order to be able to mount it when going to add even more to the latest image. Plus the image mount option is seen with the 3rd party program.
Acronis has had an excellent rep for years now. The Windows Easy Transfer tool will allow you to customize which files and folder will be backed up to the new drive however. You pick and choose them for the backup. It depends on whether or not you want instant access to the files like seen with the mounted image or simply want to have a safety with an archive such a backup or full disk image.
