Probably a novice question: I have a 80 gig HD and i'm going to add another 120 to my fairly new comp; so, how do I get the new hd to be the master and the current master's information to switch over. I think I have an idea, but is there a simple way?

You can install the 120g as your slave if it is a IDE drive and use Norton Ghost to copy it to the second Hardrive and then swith them around being that the 120g is the master and the 80g being the slave.If you have SATA then your would just have to change it in your Bios to which one you want to boot from.

Thank you! Used Norton and that worked fine.
