My computer was recently into the shop because it wouldn’t boot up. Tech guy ran his diagnostic program and was able to get it working again. The diagnosis was that there was some kind of physical defect on the hard drive. Computer has been working fine but I have since bought a new WD hard drive and want to make a clone.
My 2 questions are:
1. Old HD is 250 GB and new HD is 500 GB. When the clone is made will I loose the extra 250 GB?
2. I am guessing that I instrall the new HD into the computer and run Acronis from the old HD, the only one with operating sytem, that I am currently using ? It will use itself as a sourse and the new HD as a destination?
