I am trying to copy files over to a new hard drive. The 1st. part my C drive I have 5.1 GB;s of eisa stuff, the 2nd. part I have 15.01 GB's of files. The rest of the disk is empty.

When I copy over to my new drive I don't see the info from the 1st. 5.1 GB's. How can I copy over to the new drive (d) and have everything there. THX

This partition (the EISA one) is used for system manufacturer recovery partitions. Its specifically designed so Windows can't see it, read it, access it or generally do anything with it.

You need a utility such as Norton Ghost which will clone the drive, warts and all.

With your new disk you may have gotten a CD containing the software to do a drive to drive copy, aka imaging the drive. this may do what you want. If not follow Neil Jones advice.
