10. Configuring a New PC > 95. Clone Your Hard Disk

Clone Your Hard Disk

Getting a shiny new PC is a wonderful experience, but a new computer won’t have the lived-in feel of your familiar old PC. If your old PC is just the way you want it but not fast enough, won’t accept as much RAM as you need, can’t take a better video adapter, or doesn’t have a big enough hard drive space, then cloning it onto a new hard drive is easy.

Most of your PC’s “personality” is on the hard drive—all of the desktop settings, browser preferences and history, and, of course, datafiles. You can transfer and retain that personality on a new PC or simply on a new hard drive with disk imaging software like Symantec’s GHOST or Drive Image (http://www.symantec.com) or Acronis’s True Image, (http://www.acronis.com).
