Re: Clone a laptop drive

Am I correct in that all I would have to do is pop in the clone and,
with no further ado, I would be all set to go? Also, can I use a
larger drive to clone than is in my laptop now?

I want to clone a laptop drive that's larger in capacity than the one
in my laptop. The original has two logical partitions. I have Acronis
True Image 11. Reason: If my laptop drive ever goes south, I should
just be able to pop the cloned drive in and off we go. I need some
detailed guidance on how to do this.

The instructions that come with True Image will walk you through it. It's
easy to follow, and you will thank yourself for learning it later on.
