    I have xp and OS X on my original Acer drive and want to move it all to a new bigger drive. How is the best way to do this? I want to move both systems and all files just as they are but to larger partitions on the new drive. I know about Carbon Copy for the Mac software but what about the XP files? Anything move the entire drive and still allow me to repartition after I am done? As a second question, can I make a third partition on the disk that is formatted in some way (FAT32?) that can be seen by both OS's as a way to move files back and forth? Will this work?
