In an accounting system,  some times I have to make a perfect hdd clone
to preserve evidence including deleted folders and files.

How can I make such a perfect clone to another HDD?

And how can I read those deleted folders or files
that can not be accessed by an ordinary Windows XP?

I used Ghost images very well.
But I think it would not.

    If you need additional info on the subject to easy your mind/prove your need etc. look for products that are approved for forensic use.
    Ghost is, I have used it before making forensic copies of data for Law enforcement agencies.
