I'm a newbie to cloning and this forum. I've already purchased the full True Image 8.0, but haven't installed it yet. I'm running Windows 2000 Pro on a Dell Inspiron 4000 notebook with a 10 gig hard drive. I have bought a Hitachi 40 gig, 5400 rpm drive which I want to use as the primary drive. In reading the posts in this forum, I'm now concerned about a smooth transition. I simply want to clone my 10 gig to the 40 gig, install the 40 gig back in the notebook and use the 10 gig as a USB2.0 external drive for additional storage. Should I have concerns? This is my only / main computer for work, can't afford to be without it for days at a time. Any suggestions would be appreciated. One last question, can I clone the 10 gig drive as FAT32 to a single partition 40 gig NTFS drive, or do I need to keep them both FAT32? Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.
