My current 120G HD (Dell E1505 Inspiron) is almost full (99GB of 107GB) and I just purchased a 320G to replace it. Right now, I only have one primary partition that I am using. There are two other very small system partitions as well (47MB and 3.42GB). Unfortunately, I do not know their purpose.
I want to create 3 large partitions on the new drive and have all my current contents reside in the first one. Later I will move the "My Documents" folder to partition 2. Partition 3 will be used to house backup files of the OS and personal files.
I am using Acronis True Image trial software for the migration. Now if I try to clone the drive, I can only resize the current (3) partitions. That doesn't help me. If I try to create a whole disc backup then recover it in the first partition then I am unsure if the two small partitions on the original HD will work properly.
Does anyone have a solution for my problem? Thanks in advance!
