Hi there, I'm a noob at this cloning hdd stuff as I usually do a complete refomat when changing hdd's. I need to know the exact sequence of operations in cloning a hdd. Is this order below correct. Please correct any errors I am showing. 1.) Use either Acronis or Norton Ghost to make a clone of my hdd including o/s, file folders, application, etc... and save it to old hdd which is still pc. 2.) Shut down pc and install new hdd and remove old hdd and format the new hdd with o/s. 3.) Shut down pc again and reinstall the old hdd as the slave and make sure the new hdd is set to master. Then transfer the "clone" from the old hdd to the new hdd using Acronis or Norton Ghost. 4.) Shut down pc again and either remove old hdd or leave it in for extra storage. Is this correct or am I missing something? Please help me out, I need to know the correct method of doing this as soon as possible. Thank you so much.
