Copying pc data

  Benid 12:46 18 Sep 2005

I would like to copy my entire system on to a second hard drive, is here sofrware that would enable me to do this? I was told that Norton "Ghost" could make a mirsror of my pc so that in the eventuality of a hard drive malfunction I would re-install evcerything from the second unit. Is there another way of copying all the files, if not, where can I find a copy of the Norton software? Thanks.

Try Acronis True Image its, in my opinion, better than Ghost.
You can download it from the Acronis site

Depending on your operating system you can also use xxcopy and xxclone free from click here and click here respectively.

I am on win98SE and I use xcopy to clone my hard disk to another hard disk about every 6 months. Once done the disk is then taken out of my computer and stored. In the event of a failure I just put the cloned hard disk in as Master and reboot. The most it will be is 6 months out but as I don't save much to my C: drive (as I have a D:, E: and F: drive) nothing will have changed within that time period.
