Patience, patience , patience and then some more patience.
Just completed a successful upgrade on a T23 from 60 GB to a 120 GB primary hard disk.
Acronis True Image (using Home v.11) gives very little feedback on whether it is continuing to work or is hung up due to the long waits at times. Especially true during the initial kick off of the restore from the Recovery CD and USB drive with the backup copy. I was using USB 1.1 (it is a T23) and that did not help speed.
Net : 60 GB drive with 48 GB used, needed 13 hours to make the full HDD backup to the USB drive; then needed 27 hours to restore the 48 GB to an installed new, larger drive.

With all this experience fresh in my mind, I did a hard disk upgrade on my T60; 100GB to a 250 GB. Used Acronis True Image Home 11, latest version.
All the patience, patience, patience expressed in my previous post disappeared. On the T60 using USB 2.0 attached external drive; 80 GB backed up and then restored. Time for Acronis backup : 1 hour ! ; time for restore to new, installed hard disk : 1.5 hours !
It there really that big a transfer speed difference between USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 ?
