    Ghosting Advice Needed

    I have built a PC with a 160gb HDD

    I then used Partition Magic to make the C: drive 20 GB and deleted the D: drive..

    When I try to Ghostgast this onto a 80GB Laptop it says it's gonna take 132 hours? (only i ghost option 152 GB disk) (and its on the same gig switch)


    I then try to Local Partition to Image for the C: to Image to the D: ( reactivated D but it won't highlight the C; patition as the source..

    Any ideas on the best way forward
