    I have 2 SATA HD's. A new one is much faster than the one that came with my system.

    The new HD has a 40MB faster xfer rate than the present HD.
    I want to setup the new HD as the system disk and keep the older one as
    basically a big storage HD which means transfering the OS to the new HD. I
    have Acronis TI which lets me create an image of any HD.

    The old HD is 160GB, new one is 200GB. Physically swapping the HD's is not a
    problem. Since the HD's are not the same size will this be a problemo_O?

    During the logical swapping, is there anything specifically i should be aware of or looking out for??

    I hope what i want to do is clear enough....

    thanks,

    Hello savagcl,

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

    Acronis True Image allows you to transfer your system to a new hard disk with the "Clone Image" tool. There are different ways of cloning. Please see the User's Guide (Chapter 7) for the details.

    Thank you.
