need help cloning
Posted on 2005-03-03
I have a PC with a bad hard drive, I am replacing the hard drive with an exact same hard drive make and model. I simply want to transfer everything from one hard drive to another and have a working machine. I want to know if I can use Xcopy to do this and if so the exact procedure. I need to do this without making a purchase. It is a maxtor 200G hard drive but all that is on it is XP home and office professional and 1 or 2 other small programs. I have an old copy of Norton system works 2003, could I use this for the ghost? how long will it take to transfer? Would I be better off just reinstalling everything since there is not much on it or what? And recommendations?
