    Hi there
    I've got a new hdd coming tomorrow and now I'm looking for away to transfer all my data from osx and windows across without having to reinstall.

    Can anyone recommend an application please?

    Carbon Copy Cloner for Machintosh partition

    Winclone for bootcamp partition.

    I have never needed to clone my HDD, so never used them (just played with CCC a bit). But both apps are highly recommended by users.

    I recommend just using Disk Utility's Restore function for the OS-X partition. You'll need to startup on on Recovery HD (Lion), or your OS-X restore DVD. If running the 10.6 version of DU, check "erase destination..." to enable block copy.

    Winclone for the BC partition, though you need to be booted to 10.6, as it isn't Lion compatible.

    Once that's done, you can install the HD and recreate the Bootcamp partition using the BC Assistant (it only works when the drive is the internal device). Then, back to 10.6 to restore BC using Winclone.
