  1. I have a Compaq laptop and I want to upgrade to a larger hard drive but my Restore Disks wont work when the new drive is in. The old drive has 2 partitions- the Windows partition and a Restore partition. I cant figure out how to transfer these to the new drive. I tried Drive Image but it just creates a backup image on the new drive.

    Acronis True Image is another excellent program.

    Im using 64bit Vista and Easus only has a non-functional demo for 64bit. Is there a free version of True Image?
