Move Vista To Another Hard Drive

By BlackDiamond ·
Hey,

Would like to move Vista to a larger hard drive. Anyone familiar with this?

Vista Enterprise is what I am running. If nothing else I will just install on the new Hard Drive and copy my stuff over, was just trying to avoid reloading if possible, you know how it is. :-)

Thanx

Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore
Available in Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions, Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore is a comprehensive, image-based backup tool that will help you out of a tight spot if you need to recover your entire system.

While file restore is useful in cases of file loss and data corruption, Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore is most useful for disaster recovery when your PC malfunctions. This feature helps you create complete PC backups, and then in the event of a serious system issue or data loss, Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore can restore your entire PC environment, including the operating system, installed programs, user settings, and data files.

You can restore your PC back to its original state or onto another PC. Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore can be initiated from within Windows Vista or from the Windows Vista installation CD, if the PC is not able to start up normally from the hard disk.

System Restore
System Restore enables you to restore your computer to an earlier state without losing data. This is ideal if your computer is not operating well because of a configuration change, a problem with an application, or the introduction of viruses or other unwanted software. By restoring to an earlier point?a point before your computer began displaying problems?you may be able to easily resolve the problems. (Applications that have been installed since the restore point will be removed.) You don't have to worry about taking periodic system snapshots?System Restore automatically creates easily identifiable restore points. You can also manually create restore points at any time.
