I am installing a new hard disk on my notebook to increase capacity. I want to copy all the software on to the new disk from the old disk. I have come across the following files on the old disk, I am not sure if should copy them as well?

Pagefile.sys Save2dsk.bin Hiberfil.sys ,
System volume Information

How you going to do it???? only way that I know is buy Drive Image and an External USB CDRW and make a Image of the C:\ Drive install the new drive then restore the Image file to new Drive

Pagefile.sys = Page File (Temp Memory File)

Save2dsk.bin = ????

Hiberfil.sys = Hibernation File

System volume Information = System Restore

As woodchip says the only way to do this on a laptop is to use and image program though...

Save2dsk.bin seems to be related to hibernation.

Thanks for all your responses.
I have no problem tansferring the files to the new disk as I have cd writer to do that,my question is : Do I need these files on the new hard disk??

I would say yes as Windows will be looking for them.

Copying program files to a CD and dropping them onto the new drive will not mean the programs will work.

Do you realise that as others have said you will need a image/ghost type program to achieve that.
