I have Windows XP Pro with SP3 on my Gateway Solo 5300 laptop with a 10GB hard drive installed. I would like to install a new 30GB drive.I don't know how to clone the existing drive and transfer the image to the new drive. I heard about a software, but I'm less interested to pay.The laptop has USB and a Firewire Adapter. I also have a desktop with enough hard drive space as well as an external drive I could use for the transfer. The data on the existing hard drive is only 7.25GB. The notebook has no CD or DVD burner. Which will be the best method to go about this transfer? Again, I feel I should be able to do this with the tools I have. I don't want to spend any more money to buy additional hardware/software.
thanks for any help..
