    Ok having searched Google/ Youtube and got confused over different programmes,

    i have a laptop with a 160g hd, and running win7 32bit, i want to put everything onto a 500g hd sata, and install it in the laptop and hey presto it boots up and runs as normal with the bigger hd. What software do i need to download with the easiest method ?

    use freeware for personal use.
    clone your system drive to new hdd,(make destination partition first on new hdd)
    then boot from new hdd,if failed to boot,insert windows instalation disc then select start up repair.
    xxclone so perfect,its not fully clone like other tool sector-per-sector and not copy bad sector,plus new cloned partition defragmented free.
