I'm planning to add a 1TB SATA HD to my PC, and intend to clone the existing 250GB Drive 0 using Acronis, which is already installed on the machine. I will then use Acronis to wipe the 250GB drive and use it as a third drive on the machine ( there is another 250GB data drive).
Is Acronis smart enough to scale up all the partitions to fill the 1TB or will Partition Magic have a few hours work afterwards to do this?
Do SATA drives have any of those fiddly little links to determine whether they are master or slaves, and if not, how does the system determine which is the master?
The system is running Windows XP.
Thanks for any advice - I'm a bit rusty on this!
