Is there an easy (preferably free) way of migrating an entire HD to a new one? My C: drive on one PC is only 20 gigs and is near empty. I'd like to replace it without reinstalling anything. XP Home SP2

Thanks!

i seriously dont think that is possible......becuase when you install xp on the HDD it installs the drivers for that HDD........... say, u take ur HDD out of one computer that has XP installed on it.......... and you put it in another computer it wont work........becuase when you installed XP it intalled the drivers for that motherboard as the defualt........i think its the same deal with moving entire HDD to a new one..

Ok, so is there an easy way to move the contents of the drive without moving XP? Like keeping C: for the OS only and using the D: drive as the program drive?
