Thank you for your prompt reply. I had a Dell 690 running Win Pro with two 160GB and two 1TB drives. I upgraded to a Dell T7400 running Win 7 Pro 64 bit with same drives.
Hindsight is great. Wish I had planned better and I would have doubled the size of my 160 drives. Anyway, on the T7400, I set up the 160's in RAID 1 Array and installed the new OS and most of the programs. I am at 30% free space and kicking my backside for not planning ahead.
On the 690, I used Acronis True Image all the time (people tell me my version has some problems with 64 bit systems), and had ZERO problems doing a backup from a 80 GB BOOT to a 160GB drive, then booting off the 160 drive.
I just don't know if this Win 7 shaddow backup business is a mirror image and contains ALL the necessary OS files since it was made while the Win 7 was running. So I guess what I am asking you is how I can somehow get ALL the tidbits off that boot drive and transfer it to a bigger drize with Win 7?
