Cloning a laptop's hard drive
I want to order a new larger hard drive for my laptop. However, I don't want to reinstall all the applications. On a desktop PC it's easy to copy one drive to another but what you do on a laptop? The unit has an LS120 which perhaps could be used with something like Norton's Ghost and lots of Superdisks. Is there a better way? I don't have an external CD writer.
Yes there is a better way, but it involves removing the hard drive from the computer and its mounting hardware. It also requires a desktop pc. You can get an adapter -probably from your local pc shop- for plugging a notebook drive into a standard desktop machine; with two of these adapters you ghost one 2 th'other on the deskop machine. Most newer drive setup disks give the option to clone your old drive.
Hope that helps...
