Clone NT4 HDD

Does anyone have a plan for cloning a NT4 HDD to a portable disk. I am thinking of purchasing a 80GB portable HDD, partitioning it as 7GB bootable OS, 50GB for apps and data and the remainder for other stuff.

Any ideas.

Hello aakay

I didnt exactly understand your point of the question, can you try to explain what do u mean by clone the HDD, Are you looking for a kind of software that clones the HDD to the portable HDD, Or How you can connect them ...? or using Dual boot options and check whats the best choice for you that we suggest?

If you are looking for a software to clone NT4 HDD, Then i suggest that you Take a look at this link below:-

If You have a 2.5 inch HDD on your portable that you want to connect to a 3.5 inch? You can buy a rack and connect them to each other once you got it.

7GB is enough for the OS Partition.

And in case that you have an idea about installing both windows xp and NT on your computer, then You can do so but you have to install each of them on seperated partition.

Good Luck
