    I would like to replace my old hard disk with a bigger one.
    Is it possible that I create fresh partitions in the new disk thru disk management in win xp home , not necessarily of the same sizes as the old one and then clone the individual partitions from the old har disk including the primary one to the new hard disk using acronis true image? Will the same be bootable as my present disk iso_O?

    Hello scaa,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    You do not need to create any partitions on the new disk. Please choose the Manual mode of cloning and manage the partitions that will be created on the target disk. Actually, even if you create partitions on the target disk manually Acronis True Image will delete them and then create the partition layout itself. Please refer to the User's Guide (Chapter 7, point 7.3) for the detailed instructions on how to manage partition layout.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Ilya for your response.
    Let me explain what I am trying to do.
    I have a 40GB hard disk. I intend to put a 80GB hard disk in its place, have the same partition layout as in the old disk and utilise the unallocated space of 40GB to create new partitions.
    How should I go about it? o_O
