Case: To Clone or Not to Clone ..
Case: Cloning old 160G hard drive to new 2000G Seagate drive. This took forever, sorry .. but, slow and steady wins the race. The final solution? Loaded a temporary copy of Win XP Home on a old temporary 20G drive #1, installed Seagates Disc Wizard from http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/discwizard (one of the drives has to be a Seagate) and finally cloned old #2 to new #3. Then I could clean up old files (including an errant extra copy of Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition and Roxio / Nero DVD burning programs. Updated Bios and Drivers for Dell 3100 and finally did the Windows Update thing. Hip Hip ..
