Alright Troops? Hows Tricks?

Just bought a new 250GB Seagate External USB hard drive.

Is it possible to transfer EVERYTHING (OS, Files etc....) from my original 40GB internal IDE hard drive to the new Seagate 250GB?

Thanks

Ryan

Norton Ghost would be one way to do it, although I don't know how successful it would be via usb.

If you don't want to use Norton Ghost, you could also burn all your important files to a few dvd's and then load them over to the external drive with explorer.

Just an idea.

Hi Ryan:

I used Apricorn EZ Universal Upgrade Kit. You will read it's for Notebooks, but read further as you can use it also for Desktops. I have used it for both. Here are a couple of sites for you to look at:

CNET

Apricorn

ZipZoomFly

It is so easy to use. If I can do it anyone can.
