Transfer to new HD

Hello:
I have a 30 gig HD and want to upgrade to a 100 gig. Both are
Western Digital. I want the same partitions to exist on the 100 as with the
30,but with the larger drive being bigger so would the partitions. What
would be the best software to do this and how long should it take. The 30
gig is nearly full and I need more room and not to take all day. Any help is
welcomed.


Thanks,

Gizmo

You may wish to visit the support website of the manufacturer of your
new hard drive and see if they have a free utility program that you can use to
accomplish this task. For example, if you have a new Western Digital drive,
you can download their free Data Lifeguard Tools which includes "drive-to-drive
copy capability" (Ref: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ).
