Creating a duplicate C: drive (FAT)
Posted on 1998-07-30
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"
