Creating a duplicate C: drive (FAT)

I want to purchare a larger hard drive to replace my current C: drive.

I have a 1GB C: drive containing DOS, Win3.11, Win95, WinNT (workstation).  Master Boot record contains System Commander, which gives me a choice of OS at bootup time.  The disk is formatted as FAT.

I want to purchase a larger drive, and copy everything, including hidden and system files onto to it, and then make it my C: drive.  I have a SyJet 1.5 GB cartridge drive that can do the transfer.  Also I can plug the new, larger drive in as a D: drive, do the transfer from the current C: drive to it, and then replace the current C: drive.

How can I do the image transfer, to be sure:
1. hidden and system files are transfered correctly
2. long filenames are maintained.
3. minimize any "gotchas"

Hi,

  The best and safest way to do this is with a utility: drive copy/image from powerquest.

Let me know if you don't want to buy another program.
I think I can show you how to do it with Win95, using what you already have.
Regards,
Ralph
