Disk cloning with GParted?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I may be buying an SSD among other parts in the next day or so. I've done my research, and it will almost certainly be a Samsung 830 256Gb drive. But if I can save the $20 and skip the desktop upgrade package, I will. I'm also allergic to all things "Norton".

Do you suppose I can use GParted, or similar, to migrate the image from my C drive onto the new SSD without much ado?

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't about to order something, only to have to go out and buy something else to make it work.
