I have been through and through the menus in Acronis 10 and can't find any way to do this:

I have a 300-Gigabyte drive with three partitions, C - a 15-Gig primary boot partition with Win2000 and D & E which are both logical drives in the extended. I want to clone partition C (only partition C) to a 40-Gigabyte drive.

I can't see any way in Acronis to clone a single primary boot partition to another drive. It seems to be the whole drive or nothing at all.

Create an image of the partition you wish to move in secondary storage, then restore that partition to the new drive. Cloning is designed to move a complete disk, but this will accomplish the task.

I thought of that; but, since I do this operation occasionally, I had hoped it could be done direct, to save time.

I think all developers should make all programs all-capable to meet all needs and wants for all people everywhere. That's all I ask. :D

You can't. I don't think other clone applications will do it either.

I'll take the $29.95 version that has a couple of restrictions, you can buy the $299.95 version that does everything. ;)
