    I have an HP Pavilion mod. a1410y w/ XP Home. I want to copy my current 80G drive onto my new WD 500G drive. I have Norton Ghost 2002 and PC Mover v. 1.03.575. Which should I use? Can you give this 68 year old "novice" instructions? Any help GREATLY appreciated.

    Another good freebie is "XXClone",.. the free version doesn't do incremental back ups. The free version does make a perfect clone of your main drive onto a second hard drive set up as a slave drive. It gives you an option to make this cloned copy bootable so that you can use it if disaster strikes your main hard drive. Alternatively, you can simply keep it as a back up.

    I agree with Mumbodog. I just used the Western Digital free clone software a couple of days ago(first time for trying it), and it was a piece of cake, very easy.
