I'm wanting to upgrade to a bigger HD. Right now I have a 80gb drive and I want to upgrade to at least a 250gb hd. However I want to copy the contents of my old drive completely onto the new one. Is that possible? Also, do i have to re-install windows if I copy the contents to the new one? Any suggestions/help would be greately appreciated. Thanks!

I used Paragon's Drive Copy 8 to copy a 6.2 gig system from a 20 gig HD to a 160 gig HD. Because this was the first time i just made the 160 G HD one large partition. Otherwise i would have made a 20 gig partition for windows and the rest of the 160 G drive as a data partition. It took less than a hour to do the transfer and i have been running this computer for weeks now with no problems.
