sorry ralph, CCC is a mac only program.

windows is not able to read the mac partition/formatting without extra tools.

the only useful program to access mac files on a windows system is transmac (i used it to modify my setup dvd in order to setup 2 of my hackintoshes (asus eee 1005ha and vaio p11z)

maybe clonezilla could do the clone job

Looks interesting Markus--just might work. I appreciate that CCC is Mac only -thats why I'm looking for something similar for Windows. Thanks for the lead. Ralph +

rj713,

argh - wait, i think i misinterpreted something - you want to clone a windows partition - right (i think i should go to bed - i'm almost 20hrs up and had no coffee the last 5hrs ;-) )- cloning windows will work with clonezilla - but it will only work for computers with same/similar hardware - but i think you knew that already

markus weiher,

But that only applies because of drivers, correct? If you deactivate (or just leave it alone) the old drivers, and load the new ones shouldn't it work? I've pulled HDDs from computers and put them into others and it was a tad bit slower but I just needed to install drivers and it was good to go!

Gabe,

Hi markus, Thanks for the info. I may decide to hack this unit--if I do can I pick your brain off forum on the subject? If yes I will find some way to get you my email address. Ralph

rj713,

hi gabe, yes - it's a driver issue - but there are some windows live usb/dvd systems - sometimes pretty useful. hi ralph - no problem - my adress is markus.weiher@gmail.com

markus weiher,

Shadow Copy Cloner, available from www.goldentroutsoftware.com, will clone your Windows system partition to a partition on a second disk on a PC. In the event of a disaster, you can install the clone in your computer and boot it. It appears to be modeled after Carbon Copy Cloner, so it might be what you are looking for.

It would appear this program may do what I want. Thanks

Norton ghost and internet security suite have this ability too. If you have comcast you should get norton iss for free. Goto comcast.net login, goto security.
