Copy a harddrive

I use drivecopy to make a clone of my harddrive using win 98.  That doesn't work on win2000 Pro and they have no current plans to upgrade it.  Is there a drive copy application from another company available that works on windows 2000?

Have you tried GHOST from Symantec?

I've used it to copy NTFS partitions, which works very well.

GHOST is a dos program and fairly easy to use.

Ghost works.  Also check into PowerQuest's Drive Image.  Both work well, can be run from a floppy disk, and have utilities to selectively restore, delete, or update files from the image.

I called PowerQuest and they said that none of their products work on Windows 2000.

Make all files in your current Win2000 pro drive visable. Then make it a secondary drive. Copy all the files both hidden and non hidden in the new hard drive. Make sure that the FAT is the same structure e.g FAT32 or FAT16.
Make the new hard drive partition active then boot from the new harddrive.

Happy trying

PowerQuest's DriveImage V3.0 works with NTFS and copies Win2000 partitions just fine.

PowerQuest says DriveImange does not work with Windows 2000 pro.

Symantec says that I need to buy 10 licenses if I want Ghost 6.03 and that is over $300.   All I want to do is to copy my harddrive to another for backup.
