    Ok, here's the situation my dad has. Running WinXP on a system with a 13gig IBM drive. Just got a 60gig Seagate drive. Really don't want to reinstall WinXP and all the software on the 60gig.

    Anyone know how to mirror a drive that has XP as the OS?

    Using Norton Ghost should work ok.

    Casper XP is a new program that works really well in your situation. Also not as complicated for those of us who rarely do this type of thing.
    Having had to reinstall XP and all the related programs, drivers, etc. a couple of times, the investment was a lot less expensive than psychiatric care.

    Drive Image 5.0 (or Drive Image 2002) will do the same job as Ghost 2002 but without an annoying license key prompt every time you perfom an action.

    Remember you can always just add the second drive and leave the first intact. If the first still has plenty of spare room, this might actually be the prefered option.
