Having problems with your Dell Latitude C500 Notebook ?

Upgrading Laptop Hard Drive

\015 Hello Experts.\015\012\015\012I am putting a larger hard drive in my Laptop.\015\012I have a Dell C500 laptop (I know it's old).\015\012I need to do a disk image onto a external portable hard drive (95 gig available). What software do I use to make the image file( hopefully free) and how do I boot the computer with the new blank drive in it so I can transfer the image back to it?\015\012\015\012I have many applications that I no longer have COAs for so I need them transfered to new drive without reinstallation.\015\012\015\012Thank you for time and consideration.\015

Answers :

I can't advise you on freeware disk imaging software, do a Google search yourself, but I can highly recommend Symantec Norton Ghost.
