    My HD is full and I want to upgrade the HD.
    Is there a way to copy my HD as is, OS, programs, registry, files, onto a
    new HD before I remove it and install the new HD?
    I don't want to have to find all my old disks and reload the OS, Programs
    and files.

    A simple and cheap way of doing this would probably be using a "bootable"
    back program using as Norton Ghost (very good in my eyes) should be able to
    fit it onto a few DVD's or you could like about buy an external HD.
