A friend ran his Windows XP SP2 computer with a 20GB hard drive till it had only 1% of space left, and then called me for help. I have purchased a new 160G EIDE drive for him and want to copy the original hard drive to the new larger drive. I tried to do some disk maintaince on the old drive such as disk cleanup, disk defragmenter, and error checking. Unfourtunantly the disk drfragmenter wont work because it needs 15% free space. I obtained a copy of Acronis True Image Home 10 and attempted to do a automatic clone. It failed. Do you think this is because of the extremely fragmented condition of the source drive. I would like to free up the space to do the drfragmention, but I don't feel comfortable deleting someone elses files and programs. Would this fragmention stop the disk cloneing procedure?
