Installing new HD want to use old drive as back up?

  1. :D Thank You for this forum. Just to let you know I refer to PCs for Dummies at times so Computers are new to me.
    I just bought a new 200GB HD. I want to install it and make it the master drive, and use the old drive for backup.Will the utility that came with the HD called MaxBlast move all of my OS and settings over to the new drive, so that I will not have to reload all of my programs and reset my network. I have only had this new system for a short time and have done two restores, was told by CSR at store, that I would have to do this if I wanted to use the new drive as Master. I am learning fast but system restores slow my progress. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    MAKE SURE YOU READ OTHER THREADS FIRST THIS QUESTION HAS PROBABLY BEEN RAISED ALOT. OR TRY GOOGLE.
    However norton's ghost utility is pretty good for cloning a hard drive. that will physically copy your entire drive.
