what is the difference between cloning and imaging. I searched online and i'm a little confused.
but anyway I was wondering if I could image/clone a hard drive?
I have an old internal 40 gig HD (my c drive) that i've used msizap on it several times to free up HD space and i boot win xp to it.
I have a newer secondary 250 gig internal HD that I want to become the boot drive.
I have acronis true image 2010 home version.
I DO NOT have the win xp disc (or I don't have the office 2003 discs either). The company who did my last upgrades just did the work for me without
giving me the discs.
I have a 250 gig external hard drive that i can image/clone the c drive and then in a separate image/clone the larger secondary drive to and then image the c drive to the newer 250 gig internal drive and open the case and switch the wires.
does anybody see any problems with that? Should I do it a different way? remember I don't have the disc to install xp if a problem
thanks for your time!!
