"one partition to create (clone to my c Drive)"

Why? - a proper safe backup should be made on an external drive. An image is arguably better then a clone, as it takes less space.

hi DieSse

i have acronis true image software,i am using.

kindly can you please tell me which (Sata cable) can i buy to use,from the back of the hard drive connection to the motherboard sata connection.
