How do I easily copy or clone a Windows boot partition onto a new hard drive?
I have a 120GB drive and want to make a clone in case I break something. It doesn't have to be bit for bit, just file by file.
I have a spare 80GB, but will by a bigger drive if there is no other option.
The drive has Windows Vista and some data, but only takes up 30GB, so I could just re-size the partition, then use GPartEd or similar to copy the C: partition - if I knew bow to get the result to boot. BUT, ow can I copy the boot sector too?
As I say, I want bootable copy of that 30GB Windows Vista. I would prefer to use the spare drive that I already have, but will buy a new drive if I must.
