    anyone recommend any software to backup a complete partition or drive to another partition or drive

    i have 13gb on my C drive & want to duplicate to new hard drive - both are SATA

    i have tried symantec ghost corporate edition but although the boot disk creates OK, it won't boot to it.....it gets all the way thru loading cd drivers etc. but seems to hang at the "loading...." point. i think it is trying to load the ghost.exe software in dos but it just won't go past it.

    i have tried 2 or 3 floppies in case they were corrupt & taking some RAM out.

    if i ctrl+alt+del when it is in hang state it says "invalid stack parameter" (or similar - i forget)....."system halted"

    Have u tried to get in touch with symantec ? The reason that I ask is that You are going to need some DOS drivers to access SATA drives under DOS - and Thats where GHOST lives. If it can't see your drives, it will never back them up. I have been using GHost for a couple of years and if it can see the drives it works pretty good. I did not check the symantec web, give it a shot - maybe they have a driver for u.
