Hello,

What will be the best way to get a complete copy of a hard drive that is currently in a computer???

Not backup - COPY.

It is in a compter that has the old version 1 USB ports - so I know it will be slow going that route - but this may be my only "easy" option.

Do I need any special software to do this - or do I use windows xp copy functions? Will things be lost doing it through windows copy features?

I would appreciate a fast reply.

Thanks,
m-coon
