How to upgrade 30gb hdd to 60gb hdd?
Hello. I have a P3-laptop with 30gb hdd. I would like to upgrade to 60gb hdd which I also have. I've pulled the hdd out of the laptop, connected it to usb (with usb to 2.5" adapter) to another computer.
I tried to do it with Norton Ghost - but didn't succeed, It's either that I don't know how to do this exactly , or Norton ghost just can't do it.
I have several Ntfs partition , as long as 2 Linux partitions for Ubuntu (ext3 and swap). I would like to find some way to completely clone the hdd - including all the partition structure and their data.
Norton ghost 9 (which i have) will only allow me to backup one partition at a time and save them to image file. I've saved all partitions as image files from old 30gb disk.
Now when I want to restore partition - Norton ghost will transer only one partition at a time and make it a whole disk.
Here's what I mean:
My partitions are:
Partition 1: 1gb/ntfs/ (boot) - clean win2000 installation
Partition 2: 8gb/ntfs/ another win2000 with all the soft that i work in
partition 3: 6gb/Ext3/ Kubuntu 6.4 installation
Partition 4: 51mb/linux swap/
Partition 5: 12gb/ntfs/varios data (movies, etc)
I've copied them all to image files, Now I plug in to usb new 60gb disk, which is unpartitiond at this point. I choose "restore partition" - and point to the first image. After it finished - I see the whole disk (60gb) became a one partition with contents of the 1st partition on old disk (which is 1gb).
Now if I choose to restore second image - It just overwrites the whole disk (60gv) and makes it to be the contents of the second image.
Please help me
