I don't know how sketch this is.

I currently have Bootcamp with Windows 7 on my internal along with my Snow Leopard. I'm moving to a bigger harddrive. I'm reinstalling Snow Leopard but I would like to keep my Bootcamp. How do I migrate the data from one drive to another? Any suggestions?

I'm not willing to spend money on this

Thanks for the writeup. Not using compression on the disk image was the key to getting it to work. I am not sure why having compression on kills the restore. @Xster writeup: tech.xster.net/tips/moving-bootcamp-partition-to-new-drive –  TheJacobTaylor Jul 30 '10 at 4:27

Winclone is a free tool that will make and restore images of your Windows drive. (Alt links: Cnet Download, Softonic)

I'd never heard of that, but a quick skim of the linked URL seems like this is exactly what the OP is looking for. Upvoted. @user26453: Nice work. You might want to set your username to something a little less default, though. :) –  Alexander Burke Mar 25 '10 at 4:59

Excellent! Winclone worked flawlessly. Required settings are write as dmg and uncompressed. It takes a really long time to restore but shorter than it would have taken me to reinstall all the stuff –  Xster Mar 30 '10 at 4:48

Would this be a good way to change the partition size while you're at it? –  brainjam Apr 10 '10 at 22:43

Although Winclone has been discontinued, it's still available from Softonic. –  Daniel Beck Jan 4 '11 at 16:49
