    I've just got myself a Seagate 2TB HDD and my seagate 1TB is nearly full (this is a 2nd drive as I've got a SSD for windows.
    I got Acronis true image 2014 with the drive, tried the clone option. No go. it reboots to do it's thing and fails straight away saying something about unable to mount recovery.

    so after trying that several times, I've just copied the entire contents over, but if I remove the 1TB drive leaving the SSD and the 2TB drives the PC wont boot, SSD alone wont boot either.

    Under Computer management in windows I've got this.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll give it a go. I was hoping for something else as I don't want to risk having to reinstall everything if something goes wrong.

    Was unable to do this, so ended up re installing windows.
