    I recently went thru the blue screen of death on one of my home networked pc. It made me wonder about harddrive cloneing & backup software? What is the best out there. Are there any good free versions? Can they do a complete back and transfer to a new harddrive (to replace the old one) or a bigger hd to be used as the new primary hd for my pc? Can they be used when you get a major error in windows and just want to reinstall windows to working order? or do you have to reinstall the complete clone of the hd?

    Cheers

    First link in my signature refers.

    You burn the free software into a CD and so the health of the orginal operating system is immaterial.

    The target or the clone is a 100% mirror image of the orginal and boots exactly like the source disk. You should remove the source disk when using the clone though as two sets of identical system files may cause a MS Windoze to do funny things..
