Disk cloning success

Disk cloning success

On my PC, Seagate DiscWizard took about an hour to clone the 160 Gbyte disc onto the new Seagate 1.5 Tbyte disk drive. Once complete, I needed to reboot my PC. On Windows Vista, the operating system installed a device driver for the new hard disk.

 

In this article I explain how to upgarde a 160 GByte Hitachi hard disk drive to a 1.5 Tbyte Seagate disk drive, without having to reinstall my operating system, software, or having to back-up any data. The new disk has been organised so that I can install Windows 7 on a second disk partition at a later date.
