April 28th, 2004 Tony No comments

i was running out of disk space and looking for a quicker solution than reinstalling my OS. all my data and program files existed on a second drive called ‘D:’. this is the drive i wanted to upgrade. here is how i did it:

i bought a 160GB Seagate

formatted it NTFS and assigned it to drive H:

copied everything from D: to H: (xcopy /c/h/e/k/r d: h:)

changed old D: to U: and new drive H: to D: with PartitionMagic 8.0
