    I got everything already installed on a 250gigs hdd and wanna transfer the whole setup to a 320gig more recent hdd.

    I want it really simple.

    Do I just copy and paste the C: to send it to the other drive or i use a software you can suggest me?

    I will just open the case plug in the free hdd and copy files there. Then after screw it there and close the case.

    Thank you.

    Macrium Reflect Free Edition is a better alternative to Acronis and free for everyone. There is also Clonezilla but that's going to be a bit more confusing to a newb.

    How about DriveImage XML? I've read great reviews about it, but never really gave it a shot. It's been a long time since I upgraded my HDD. It's free and very compact (1.78MB) You might be able to find it on UBCD.
