Hello, Thank you for taking the time to read this message. Over a month ago I suffered a house fire. Fortunately I was able to salvage a few things, one being my computer. I have noticed strange happenings with the computer (Sometimes the HDD is not recognized in the BIOS)and I get the message "Insert system disk and press any key to boot" ... (Sometime the computer re-boots out of the blue) ( Very Sloooowwwww )and I am afraid the HDD is going to crash soon. I remember the "OLD" days of XCOPY and GHOST etc. I do not know if these programs would make the HDD bootable or if the would work with XP. What I would like to do is completely copy the contents of a small 20GB HDD that has been doing what I need it to do for a few years not but is getting smaller by the day and getting ready to crash. As you know a 20GB HDD is just about extinct !! Seeing where I feel it is going to crash soon, I would like to purchase a much larger HDD format and partition it. Is there a way or a program one of you "Pro's" are aware of that I can copy everything from the 20GB to another HDD and have the new larger HDD boot ? With the fire I have lost all of my software CD's, Windows XP CD etc. etc. I am trying to have the NEW HDD bootup and have the software still intact. Is there a way to do this ? Any information will be appreciated. Thank you for your time. Rick M.
