Hard Drive Upgrade Install Guide
Clone Old Hard Drive To New Hard Drive (continued)
Norton Ghost shows the "Destination Drive Details", meaning it shows what the destination drive partitioning (the new hard drive) will look like after the hard drive clone completes. In most cases the old hard drive has a smaller capacity than the new hard drive. Norton Ghost handles this by giving each partition on the new hard drive the same percentage of total hard disk space as it had on the old hard drive, so each new partition is proportionally larger than it's old hard drive counterpart. You can see this under the "New Size" and "Old Size" columns. Norton Ghost does not allow you to change the new partition sizes. It may look like the values in the rectangles under the "New Size" column can be modified, but any changes made are not kept. Clicking on the "OK" button at the bottom of the screen (not shown) brings up the next window.
This prompt from Norton Ghost indicates it has all the input it needs and gives one last chance to think about it before the old hard drive is copied (cloned) to the new hard drive. Clicking on "Yes" starts the copy (clone) operation.
