I have a delicate operation to do in regard to cloning a HDD.
I have a specialized medical device that has a failing HDD, and a modified version of Windows XP.
What I would like to do, is to clone an entire system to a same type and model of HDD. I got the HDD, and today I will have to commence the cloning.
However, I am not sure about the cloning software. Should I use Acronis, or something else? - Re Acronis, what worries me is that they also have a sequence that runs on newly cloned HDD, sot hat everything sets in - which I wouldn't like.
Free drive cloning, dd comes with just about every Linux distro that exists, just burn to a CD or USB and mount off any computer with both HDDs inserted.
