    I have an 80GB with a 3 partitions. I want to replace that 80 with my 120, can ghost copy over all 3 partitions from the 80 to the 120? I can just use Partition Magic to resize the partitions later to fill up the drive.

    I've not tried it, but I'm very familiar with Ghost.

    Create 3 different images - one for each partition. Create the partitions you want on the 120 drive - they have to be the same size or larger than the original ones. Then just restore the Ghost image :)

    Or you could do what you suggested and just do a disk clone. If you do use PM, make sure you don't kill your 80 Gig HD until it's complete. BTW, you don't have to create the partitions first, ghost will give you the option of selecting the size of the target partition,

    I've been using ghost for over 5 years, and while I probably knew all of this at one time, I've never used it. Thanks :)
