    Just use Norton Ghost (if U don't have I can give U its free version) to create backup.

    Run Norton Ghost & create image of every partition for which U want backup. Restore the image on new hard disk & U will get everything just as it was on old hard disk.

    yup.... use Norton Ghost 7... i think right now its a free tool...

    Download it... boot with 98SE or or any DOS based boot Disk... run the Ghost program... make a complete image of the OS pertition...

    now create same size pertion (OS drive only with same drive letter) in 200GB... Boot from the boot disk run the ghost tool to restore the backed up image :p

    u r done ...

    You can try Acronis True Image which is more user friendly and easy to operate than Ghost.

    @Janitha, Acronis True Image is a shareware, it is not a freeware.
    Once you install the software , you can use it for 15 days. It's fully functional.
    Download it from here
    Acronis True Image 9.0 Home file size is 75.1 MB!!
