I would like to upgrade my machine with a bigger HD. Should I use ThinkVantage Rescue & Revocery program to create rescue media on cd/DVD from old HD, change to the bigger HD and install the factory system on the new HD.

 

Whould this be the process?

you can use easeus disk copy.

about replacing hard drive, make sure it fits into the hard disc space. by the way, planning to buy more than 500 gb hdd?
if so, make sure if your main-board supports

Since my taget HD is larger that my current, shall I use the above?

 

Any experience?

2. If the size of destination disk is larger than source disk, after the copy finished, the size of destination disk will be changed to the same size as source disk and the rest space will be distributed into unallocated space.

 

Yes ths but it seems that the copy function does not make use of the ful size of the new disk.
