Default I'm going to cry

I have been on the phone with 6 different WD support guys and at the very end I find out that I cant do a drive to drive copy to my new SATA 320G WD hard drive because their Data Lifeguard Tools doesn't support Vista!!! I can't believe that they don't have a program that is compatible with Vista. Geez! Can someone please tell me how I can copy my old drive to my new one. After what I have been through today, I dont want to take it back out and return it.

I'm assuming you mean internal drives. In that case.

Let me google that for you

Thanks, I guess that I COULD have done that myself but I was looking for a little more specific answer. I guess I got the wrong person. Maybe someone else can help me.

Thanks

...chill out dude. It's a joke.

The first link will help you out plenty, but if you really want to wait for someone else, go ahead.

Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image; I know the newer versions of Ghost work with Vista.

I guess that my nerves are a little frayed right now. After being on the phone for 5 hours today trying to get this straight. I'm sure you've been there also. Thanks
