I have tried Ghost 9.0, 2003 and Acronis TruImage.  They don't recognize the drives as having a partion or data on them.  They are not recognized in Ghost 2003 despite Int13h enabled.

you can use linux and ddrescue to clone the drives.

download an ubuntu
Install ddrescue

then do
You must identify what drive /dev/sd? is the 9 and what is the 18
you can do this with gparted:
sudo gparted

Then if the/dev/sda is your 9 gb and /dev/sdb is your 18 gb drive.


sudo ddrescue -n /dev/sda /dev/sdb /home/logfile.log
if there are any errors, then
sudo ddrescue -r 1 /dev/sda /dev/sdb /home/logfile.log


This will run for about 2.5 hours and exactly bit for bit copy 9gigs of data from your 9gb to an 18 gb drive.

Note to you tech gurus out there, you can use this method to rescue one member of a stripped raid array for data recovery purposes, and best of all it's free.

Hope this helps,

Ghost 9 is live, you will have to install on system, then create an image to external drive or DVD media. After done, install new drive, setup raid if you do have it, then restore image to new drive.
True Image 8 will do the scsi:

I ended up using g4u to clone bit-by-bit via SCSI to SCSI
