Connect both drives to the computer at the same time. If you don't have enough USB ports, connect one to a USB port and the other to a Firewire port. Open a file management window (Explorer in Window, Finder in Mac OS) for each drive. Click and hold the left mouse button (only mouse button on most Mac models in the window for the 80 Gig drive and drag across several folders/files to select them. Release the mouse button, then click on and drag the selected group to the new drive window. When this copy operation is done, repeat with another group of files.
You could select (-A or -A) and drag everything on the old drive at one time, but sometimes the system will bog down on copying large amounts of data (greater than 4-8 GB at a time).
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive good luck with this
make sure the laptop will handle a drive bigger than 130 gig. if not make two partitions when you set it up, bios wont see it but usually windows will. also, sometimes ive found that if i delete the partition a few times it eventually reads right. dont know why but have done it that way several times. you can also download a diskmanager program from thier website which makes an overlay if your bios wont support a 250.
just go to All programs<Accessories<System Tools<Backup. and choose the option you want.Once you have choosen what all you want to backup than you can choose the option for the place where you want to back it up.
Hope that works!
Are you surfing the internet a lot? You may be getting a lot of temporary files. Here is something to try. In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history. This should help some. You are always going to go down in space. Windows updates automatically on a regular basis. This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
