Hello -

I'm going to upgrade my HD using Norton Ghost. The old HD is 40GB and the new one is 160GB. How do I make sure the unused space on the new disk is usable after cloning from the old one - or does Ghost take care of this at some point in the process?? Thanks

Ghost will take care of it.

And if you have more than one partition, Ghost will dynamically resize the partitions as well.

Thanks very much, Neil. I'm still trying to decide if I want to simply upgrade my single drive or do a RAID1 array with 2 new big drives. If I use Maxtors they come with MaxBlast software that will detect a new SATA drive and migrate the data from the old IDE drive to the new SATA drive. I found a good tutorial on the process - see if you think the info looks good! RAID1 array
