I know someone with this machine who is down to 1.5GBon the C volume. The machine is crawling and stalling and is frankly a nightmare for even the simplest tasks. She has 80GB left on the D volume. She will be getting a new laptop at some point in the not too distant future but not right now.
I suggested swapping in a new, higher capacity hard drive as her Inspiron seems to be a piece of cake to get into.
The plan is to do what I did with the wife's MBP a few months ago. Basically clone the system over to the new drive using a SATA to USB cable. Install the new drive. Is this possible? If not, any alternatives?
It's running Windows 7. I'll also need some tips on a good free cloning application and in the case of my idea not being possible, a plan B
This is uncharted territory for me but the hardware side looks too easy to be true.
Is my plan failed from the outset?
