    I'm using XP pro etc.

    I've got a new larger harddrive where my present main harddrive is full.

    The question is, can I copy my present 'My Documents' onto the new hdd and then install XP etc on the new hdd when completed and the old hdd removed.

    Or have got to start from fresh and copy all the files I want onto DVD's.:confused:

    Thanks Mate,

    Sorry not replying earlier, I' ve just done the Harddrive. And I do owe you a Beer.:)(y)

    But the problem I had, I could not get windows to see the second partition I created and formatted etc, it was seen before the reboot and not after. So in the end I went into 'Services' and re-formatted the partition there and hey presto.

    It certainally saves a heck of time in resetting your PC.

    Thanks again :)
