Welcome to Geeks To Go

You can use Easeus Partition manager It is free for personal use(if your get the Home version)

Down load from the above link create a Bootable CD

Reboot the computer with both of the hard drives installed...

Identify the drive you want to replicate and the one you are going to send the data to.

Then tell it to copy the drive to the new drive.

You will have to press a certain button(I don't remember which one) To tell it to finalize the action... (It will take a period of time)

When it is done shutdown the computer remove your old Hard drive (Reboot)

As long as the computer is set to boot from your new HDD it should boot right back in to windows like it always did... (DO NOT ERASE your old HDD until you are sure this worked)

Good luck

Hope this helps
