The Next Gumby Operation

Once the format was done, I start the Clone Disk operation with Acronis Migrate Easy. It estimated it would take about 3 hours to complete. Darn...that would put me past midnight.

Will this be the 3rd night in a row where I didn't get to bed until after midnight...with trying to squeak through on only 5 hours of sleep (6:15am alarm).

Actually, it turned out to be even less. :**:

When the Clone Disk operation finished, I switched the drives and restarted. The system reported problems with the disk, and did an automatic check disk. When it was done, the resulting disk had many of the directories missing (including stuff needed by stuff that starts automatically on the machine) and was reporting 157GB of free space. That's pretty amazing considering it was a 250GB drive with only 1.7GB of free space going over to a 300GB drive.

Actually not.

This meant resorting to the slower windows copy of the data from the old drive to the new drive. By the time I got this going and headed off to bed it was almost 2am. :yawn:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
