    I just had my HD upgraded from 200G to 500G on my 08 MBP by a certified Apple tech shop. They migrated my Mac side for me, but were no help with the Bootcamp XP side.
    I have a few programs that need to run on XP.
    How can I get all of the files in the right places on the new Bootcamp partition from the old?
    Dragging them in didn't help.


    Thanks,

    Joe

    Here's what you want: it will clone your Windows installation to a disk image, and then restore it. I'm unsure if it will work on an external disk but I think it does.

    Thanks, I'll give that a try.
    Does it matter how i format my new bootcamp partition if i'm cloning the old one to it? Should it be the same as the old?
