Hi, I have two 80GB HDDs, I converted them to Dynamic disks and spanned them. I now have drive C: which is only drive C: and drive E: which spans into drive C: about 20GB. Now I'm upgrading to a bigger HDD and I was wondering how I would go about cloning these drives onto one HDD since I have two.

You need cloning software that
a. recognizes and can work with dynamic disks
b. recognizes and can work with RAID

To the software, it will appear as a single disk just as your OS sees it. Just clone C drive to a new larger drive.

I know Acronis True Image home with plus pak can do it. I'm not sure of what other software out there can.
