... You can install to a bigger drive but recreate identical sized *partitions* on that larger drive. Then ... use a partition tool to resize the restored C: to take up the full space.
Now can Partition Magic resize both
the Windows and Linux partitions? Will both of these partitions remain bootable without further work? Yes, this is a dual-booted system.
Also, I read somewhere that Partition Magic is very old and that there's another utility people are using today instead. I just can't remember the name.
I like the idea that True Image is faster than Paragon. However, I don't understand why Paragon is MS gold certified
and True Image isn't. For the server product, Acronis recommends turning off the Windows shadow copy service during backup with True Image, and I'm wondering if that's why Microsoft didn't gold certify it.
