Hi, My computer and some of the hard drives on it are running well but are old and need replacing. So I am going to assemble a new computer of the Performance Mid-range classification. I run XP and Vista Home Premium in a multi boot system on their own HDD. I have data I want to keep, distributed over 2 other HDDs each with 2 or 3 partitions. The new computer will be configured in multi-boot, with XP, and probably Vista or Win7. I also have one large capacity HDD dedicated to hold backups made by Acronis 2009.9796. I also have an Acronis Secure Zone on another HDD. But over the years, these have become too cluttered and unwieldy, and I am ready to wipe them clean. Will you please advise the best way to prepare for the new computer. I want to be able to have all the data presently on the 2 old HDDs moved to a new HDD in the new computer. I really dont know where to start. Should I backup the 2 HDDs to the HDD dedicated to Acronis, and when the new computer is running, install the Acronis HDD into it and then restore the data to a new empty HDD in the new computer? OR should I backup the 2 HDDs to the Acronis HDD, remove the 2 old HDDs, install a new HDD in their place now, restore to the new HDD, and when the new computer is running install the new HDD into it? Is there a simpler way? Please advise. Many thanks Roystont.
