Acronis Migrate Easy
Full user review
"WOW !!!!!!! What an easy way to copy or clone a HD."
Did the 15 day trial version. Went from 60 gig to 320 gig with just a few mouse clicks. I had no idea it could be so easy to install a new hard drive and transfer "ALL" the programs, settings, files and XP OS from the old HD to the new.
My only complaint is that I didn't know about this product years ago.
I had some initial concerns that the trial version might not be fully functional but I have not found anything missing and everything is working as well it did before. The few mouse clicks to start the process only took a couple minutes of my time. After those initial menu choices Acronis took over and did everything it had to do. Acronis Migrate Easy did take almost 2 hours to do its thing but that's by far a whole lot quicker than it would have taken to reinstall all the programs and applications and I didn't have to sit there and babysit the process. Nor did I have to deal with any activation keys or registrations.The 2 hrs seems longer than what most of the other reviewers have claimed but I think it took longer because I don't have hi-speed USB 2.0.
I'm 63, don't speak geek and this is absolutely the best free download I've ever used.
