Hard drive copying

Hi! I am in the process of buying a new hard drive so I could put only Windows XP Pro on as to help keep my computer from slowing down. Right now I have 1 IDE Seagate 120 gb hard drive. It is about half full. I was wondering if there was any software or method to ONLY relocate windows (none of my other files; only the ones that window needs) onto the new hard drive. Or is there a method in which you can remove only windows without having to reformatt the hard drive and losing all my files and i just put a clean install on the new hard drive.

Thanks in advance!

neither of those is possible as far as I know. You can make an 'image' of a whole partition using software such as Ghost or TrueImage, but not an image of only part of a partition.

Why not simply fit a second hard disk to give you more storage space and leave your existing system boot disk as it is?
