    You could use Norton Ghost. It allows you to create an exact copy of your current HDD into the new HDD (even if the new one is of a larger capacity). It automatically resizes the partition for you. You can choose to customise it of course.

    There are others on the market, but I use this and it works well for me.

    You may however, wish to consider reinstalling from scratch, as your old HDD may have a lot of stuff that is accumulated over the years and may cause your OS to be sluggish.

    See what works for you la...

    Nothing will work better than NOrton Ghost. If you cannot get a copy of the software, PM me and I may be able to help you.

    Use the old HDD for back up lor. Like in my case, upgrade to new PC, still using the old one for backup or downloaded stuffs. You never knows when you new one whether last for how long
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!
