Moving Hard Disc question - clone
satimis Aug-16-02 09:30 PM
Hi all,

OS - Win XP

I am preparing to move a 40G ATA100 to a 20G ATA100 hard disc, the latter of which shall be installed in the same PC replacing the former.

The current used space in the 40G hard disc is about 15G

1) What shall be the easy and safe way to perform this task ?
2) Could I install the image of the 40G hard disc to CD for future use and how ?

Thanks in advance.

Stephen Liu

Norton Ghost can do such thing flawlessly.
The setup that you start to use the clone in the same PC will make it just perfect.
The HAL does not have to be changed for this.
You can burn the contens to CD-Rom disks, but you need something like "Take-two" from Roxio (Adaptec) or a Backup tool from Nero.

Hi Victor,

Thanks for your advice.

1) My office has Ghost 5.1 but for Win95/98 only not for XP. In my case how can I make use of it. I can bring my PC to office.

2) I have Roxio Easy CD Creator 5 running on my PC. It has backup function. How can I restore the image CD to an empty hard disc when I replace the WinXP hard disc with a new 20G hard disc. I never use this function. Can the image CDs created boot the PC? Kindly advice.

Thanks in advance.

Stephen
