This being a new area to me, I'm not even sure on the terminology. Cloning, I believe is the correct term for what I'm trying to do.
I have a machine which has several local and several network drives (all show up in Windows Explorer with their designated letters for separate partitions). I would like to clone them all (everything, including an OS) to an external USB HDD, so I can make copy everything to an identical machine with minimum of fuss.
How would one go about that?
I'm guessing booting from the external HDD and ... ?
