Can someone please help or advise on what I am doing wrong. I am wanting to swap out and existing hard-drive for a new one of a larger size. I currently own a Sony vaio laptop with one internal harddrive. A 40GB fujitsi IDE drive. I would like to clone or copy all data from this to a new 120GB Seagate momentus IDE harddrive. I have to clone/copy the data by using a harddrive caddy which I have the seagate installed and communicates via the USB port. I assume this is possible? I want to leave the existing data on the source drive after copy to the target. unscrew the source and insert the new target drive and reboot and carry on from there. My existing 40GB drive has the following: a recovery partition of 5.4GB a 'C' drive of 18GB a 'D' drive of 13GB I would like to readjust the partitions to the following: A recovery drive of 6GB A 'C' drive of 45GB A 'D' drive of 60GB I have tried using the clone function from TI 10.0 and tried the clone function from migrate easy ver 7.0. Both of these utilities require a reboot prior to proceeding and they both reboot then fail. ME 7.0 with Partition configuration has changed press any key to continue When I use TI 10.0 clone option it appears to use Migrate easy and always produces the following after reboot: Analyzing partition 100% Locking partition 100% Checking partition 100% the quickly followed by: Error: Partition configuration has changed press any key to reboot. Thats all I get. Upon looking at the forums I see an option to use Microsofts sysprep but I believe this only to be needed for different hardware and I am copying from IDE to IDE only of a larger size? Also should the target drive that is active in the usb port have any jumper selected. Its just plain vanilla with no jumpers active. Which I believe makes it a master drive. I am currently execution MS XP-Home SP2. and using the trial versions of TI and ME as I am in the process of upgrading from MI Home 9.0. OEM whatever this was it did not have the clone function present. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance john.
