Hi,
I.m running Win2K pro. I want to replace the HDD, the old one is about 4 years old.
My question is this: How can I write and image of my existing HDD to my Maxtor Mini III and then write that back to the new HDD-preferably using either the existing Maxtor softwarwe or a free program?[Suppliers in town want $A110, say $US 120]to do the job, any software I have to buy would obviously need to cost less than that.
Thanks for your help.

Why image the drive? Take a look at the website of the manufacturer of whichever new hard drive you intend to buy. You should find a free utility to clone the old drive directly to the new one.

Hi,
Many thanks for your help, guys. [please note, just in case, in Australia we use guys for both genders.]
I've downloaded DISCWIZARD from the Seagate site-it has allowed me to create an image of the C; drive on the external Maxtor. I'll buy a new drive tomorrow and install it.
