I am getting ready to do a clean install of Windows 7 over XP. I want to reformat my 250 GB hard drive keeping the two existing partitions but changing their sizes. I want one partition to be only 50 GB for just the OS. Everything else will go in the other partition. I am backed up with Carbonite and an external HDD. I want to use Windows Easy Transfer however I don't know if WET will allow me to migrate files from the old "C" for instance into a new, larger "F". Perhaps I would be better off to move everything by hand. There are several good tutorials on the installation, but I can't find an answer to this problem.

If you want to re-size, create partitions, I have used Easeus Partition Master and it works very well.

Never used WET, but I would think it should do what you ask.

Hope this helps... :huh:
