I'm thinking about upgrading to Win7 32bit. I have a 1gb C:drive my Vista Ultimate 32bit OS is on but don't want to mess it up. I also don't want to switch to 64bits because some of my programs won't work.
I have a 250gb external drive I'm thinking about cloning my OS drive ( Windows, Users, Programs, Program & Data 182gGBs not including other files) to. Do I have to repartition ( shrink) the drive first because of the difference in drive sizes?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
