So I picked up a new drive, but am having problems copying over my data folder. I tried the acronis stuff that comes with seagate, but it failed, I suspect there also would be alignment issues. It also only wants to work with 2 TB partitions and wants to copy all partitions.

The drive is gpt. Right now I am trying with xcopy but it appears to be slow. is there a better way?

Yes, use the disk copy tool. Make sure you are using the latest version of acronis, not an old torrent one.. that can fail. The disk copy works quite well. Oh, disable windows 8.1 boot as well in the bios - I couldn't get a copy when it was enabled.
