    I have a netbook with two SSDs (eee 901). I'd like to clone C: to D:, which is larger and faster, and render the old drive invisible. Anyway Acronis 11 won't let me clone to the larger drive for two reasons:

    1. The disk has errors (it doesn't)

    2. The destination is too small (it isn't).

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried this when booted from the TI Rescue CD? Once you perform the clone, be sure and remove or disconnect one drive before the first boot following the clone.
