I am attempting to copy replace my 120gb primary HD with a new 750gb HD and keep all data, programs, OS, etc. by cloning the existing drive to the new 750 gb drive. I go as far as manual relayout and the following occurs: ORIGINAL drive configuration: C partion: 20.96GB BACKUP PARTITION: 9.76 gb J partion: 72.7 gb NEW 750 GB PROPORTIONAL drive config: c: 183.1gb backup: 61.0 J; 454.5 I would like on the new drive: c: 600gb backup: 38.64gb J: 60gb The manual relayout will not allow me to make C: greater than 183.1gb. Is there another method of making the C partition the full 750 gb and eliminating the other two partions (backup & J) or making the C partition 600gb? I need to save the data on the C partion but there is no data on the other back and J partitions. I also have ACRONIS DISK DIRECTOR 10 if this can help. When I am done cloining to the new drive, I want to simply take the existing drive out and plug in the new one. Will it boot up on its own or do I need to make a CD boot disk?
