Exact clone from one hard drive to another on the same system
Posted on 2003-11-05
I currently have a 20 gig hard drive in my gateway computer running Windows ME (hoping to be able to upgrade to XP after I have the 80 gig operational). I just purchased an 80 gig hard drive last night. I want to use the 80 gig as my master (because the 20 gig is making some noise and I don’t trust it). My question is two fold one, I need an exact copy. This is due to a program that I have that has a special key to run an engraver. If you have to reinstall this software you have to get another key (number) to make it active at a substantial cost. So will the Maxtor software perform this? Or do I need something like Norton’s Ghost? Then I would like the 20 gig to be a back-up drive in the same system so If this is possible then is there something that I can do to have the 80 gig back-up like once a week to the 20 gig?
