    What's up guys and gals! I recently bought a lot of 3 160G HD. One for my pc, one for my girls pc, and most importantly one for my ps2!
    My question is this. How hard is it to format the HD and transfer all files on my current PC's HD to this new one. Please I need a little guidence, or a link on how to. Thanks a million to those who give me a hand with this.

    Hey

    You can transfer(clone) the entire disk using programs like Norton Ghost and this free Casper XP.

    First install the 160GB into your machine as slave to the drive you want to copy(master). You will have to initialize and format it before you ghost. Casper will do this for you but if it doesn't ..........

    Start
    right click My Computer
    Manage
    Disk Management
    on the right side of the screen you will find new 160Gb
    right click on drive and click Initialize
    right click on drive and click Format

    You are now ready for Casper. I believe this program works on XP/2000 only. Follow the instructions and you should be fine.
