Pre-Ghost Security Process
Posted on 2004-11-02
I need to copy my Hard Drive to a new one...it appears the old is "bad" according to mfg. There have been issues on the old HD that appeared to be from a Virus or other pest. Since I intend to use Norton Ghost to copy the HD, I wish to make sure there is no Pest or Virus in residence on the old HD. I have researcrd and found pest/virus deletion answer #s Q-21168160 and Q-21159548 on Experts-Exchange.
Both answeres are excellent...can anyone comment whether these are the most complete processes to eliminate all pests and Viruses prior to copying my HD? Anyone have aditional suggestions?
Also, is anyone aware of a better Software than Norton Ghost to make a duplicate Hard drive? I am not enchanted with Symantec but Ghost seems to be the most Highly recommended. Thank You
