I want to install a larger hard drive on my son's PC and have tried (unsuccessfully) to clone the existing HD. Drive Image 7 (used before) didn't work and MAXBLAST 4 failed to copy all the files and suggested Scandisk + Defrag. I have run CHKDSK & Defrag but get the same error. I have deleted a number of large files to reduce the size but have found a file that will not delete. It is a 394,475KB video clip (Incomplete) and I get the message - can't delete, file being used by another person or programme. I have scanned with McAfee, Pest Patrol and Spybot with no result. I could format the drive and restore the backup but would be left with the same problem.
Thanks for the help. I used Unlocker in case there were any other files and, after another failed attempt I've succeeded to swap the drive using MaxBlast 4 (Windows). I guess the lesson is to use up to date software.
