Hay guys I decided to use my state tax return to by a game and a new hdd because my C is an old 40gb and with all the games I play its just not enough.
So I my plan is to by a 1tb or better and transfer everything from my H hard drive over to it, then use the create system image thing build into windows to make my secondary my new c drive. then i'd just make the tb my new H drive and put my old 40gb away somewhere.
my question is if that would mess with the registry in a way that I would end up having to reinstall everything anyway.
KC recommended a utility named 'EaseUS Partition Manager' to me some time back thats really good. (&free &easy) It has a disk operation called "upgrade system disk' you can read about at the website. Thats what I would do.
windows has a build program that creates a back up image of your system and you can use it to put it on a different drive using that back up image saved on 1 of the hdd's and the install disk. im wondering if I should just use that instead of using a 3rd party program. ive been procrastinating about it so far but when I get around to it ill have to check out that program Wheelsmoke mentioned. ive already gone ahead and let it make the image just haven't gotten to actually doing it yet. thanks for all the input so far though guys!
