    Questions re Upgrading 750GB HDD to new 2TB HDD using Macrium Reflect


    I plan to upgrade my 750GB ATA drive to a 2TB HDD on my 6 year old Dell XPS9000 that has W7

    The 750GB Drive has a 250 OS System partition and a 500GB data partition.

    If I image my hold 750 GB HDD to the new 2TB HDD how will the System and Data partitions be restored on the new 2TB HDD?

    Will the new HDD have to be formatted before I put the restored Macrium image on it?

    My Desktop has two users will the restored images of the system and data disk keep al of the user settings favorites desktops etc ?

    :)

  2. Windows Boot Sector corrupted

    Does your HDD installation still work? If so then this would be the correct procedure to follow:

    • Use Macrium Reflect (or a similar tool) to create an image of your installation.
    • Disconnect the HDD, connect the SSD.
    • Boot the machine with the Macrium Reflect bootable rescue flash disk.
    • Restore the image to the SSD.
    In general: When restoring images you must make sure at the first reboot to connect the new disk only. If both disks are connected then you risk ruining both installations.

    If you image it normally gives you an option to resize partition if not it can be done after with disk manager. A image means everything works as it is now all users etc will all be the same

    You don't touch the new disk it will be formatted and partitions created by the image
