My XP computer is crashing repeatedly and I think it is due to an old, overheating hard drive. I've got 5 hard drives on this computer and they all run between 30* C and 38* C (86 - 100* F). The C:\ drive is the hot one and it crashes when it gets to 48* C (118* F). I've got plenty of ventilation in the box, so that's not the problem. I think the C:\ drive is overheating because it's my oldest drive - over 5 years old and probably on the way out. I"ve got an image of my C:\ drive and plenty of room to create a partition on a good, cool drive to make it my new C: drive. My question is, do I need to make the new partition the exact same size as the imaged drive was? My C:\ drive that I have an image of is 29.6 GB. The partion on the new drive that I would move it to is 100 GB. Do I need to repartioned that drive so one partition is the same size as the old C:\ drive I've imaged? thanks.
