Why bother with the copy? Just install the second hard drive have enjoy the capacity of both.

I would recommend using Norton Ghost to create an image file of your information. If you don't want to do that, Western Digital and/or Maxtor have a downloadable utility that will do an exact disk copy - this would allow you to transfer your OS without having to install all of your apps again.

The cheap way would be to slave in the new hard drive. Before you partition and format the new drive, I would totally unhook your old drive. When adding new Hard, DOS tends to re-arrange drive letters. After you have the new drive ready, slave itin to the old drive and start windows. From windows, empty temporary internet files, history, recycle bin, basically anything you really don't want to copy. Then run scandisk and defrag. Turn off any programs running in the background and disableyour screensaver. Then go to Start/Run and type xcopy32 c:\*.* d:\/h/c/e/k That's it.

The easy way would be to get Ghost.
