I don't want to install all again in a new bigger hd, so I prefer to add a new 80 gb or bigger hd and move some content there.
My main problem is that my actual C partition is only 20gb and I guess I can't do anything about it.
I knew about external hd that doesnt need acdc adaptator, and works just with an usb cable. Seems easier way to add another disk and move some files there.
But is an external hd a viable solution? Is it slower than a common internal hd?
Is there a way to move my C content including win xp SO to a new hd without reinstalling everything?
These utilities typically can't do this if you are using some kind of advanced volume management or RAID. No problem, though, for FAT, FAT32, NTFS, EXT2/3.
In most cases, the option exists to copy to a new hard drive while simultaneously resizing partitions.
In case I get a new hd, should I use NTFS even I don't put programs there?
I don't see any downside to using NTFS, and plenty of downside to using FAT32. NTFS is much more robust in the case of power or disk failure. The only good reason for not using NTFS is a need for a partition that can be read or written by some other OS that can't read NTFS. And those are becoming few and far between.
