I need to directly clone two different partitions; I will be storing the two clones on another hard drive.

Are there any good quality programs that anyone can recommend? I'm looking for stability in the program.

This will get closed as a duplicate, but in my opinion, THE best for cloning a partition, or entire drive is Acronis: acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage It is only $30 right now, although you can buy an add-on to do bare-metal restores and some other features: acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/#plus-pack A lot of people like free Clonezilla, which is also very good. –  KCotreau Jul 20 '11 at 16:48

I really love Clonezilla. Free. Stable. Linux-based. Saves on network shares. No problems with usb or sata. Clones Windows, Linux and Mac Os partitions (and more) or disks. With a graphical interface so easy that's boring...

Can we ask for more?
