Complete copy of hard drive???
I am currently using a 250Gb hard drive that is almost ful due to me recording large amounts of audio and other music related products(VST's and effects etc).
I need to buy a new 1Tb hard drive and copy all of the 250gb hard drive right across, Win 7 included. Everything even virus' if they are there and I need for it to just run straight away as though nothing has changed except for the extra 750Gb of memory if you can see what I mean. I don't want to have to go re-install of of my stuff.
I have a 1Tb drive that I am using as backup at the moment, a slave drive but it has a lot of valuable data on it so I don't want to wipe it, I would prefer to buy a new 1Tb and go from there. Can this be done? Are there any tutorials that show you how to copy a whole hard drive over like this??
thanks for your time, Ste.

You also have a Western Digital HD listed in your specs. Western Digital offers a scaled down version of Acronis for free. It has a clone feature included in it. You can install ti and clone 1 hard drive to the other, which will transfer your OS, apps, email and everything else. Download it here. It just has to see a western digital drive to work, but does not have to be involved in the transfer. Then you can use the partitioning tool that Pooch linked to, for partitioning it.
