I am going to install a new hard drive for a friend...He would like to keep his old information. I have used the xcopy command in the past with little success. I found a free program called xxcopy on the web. Anyone use it before? If so any suggestions ect..
Thanks.

I don't know about "xxcopy", but "xcopy"
or "xcopy32" (whichever you have) should
work OK if you use the /H and /E switches.

Something like this (with your file specs):

XCOPY /H /E D:\*.* C:

The "/H" gets hidden and system files.
The "/E" maintains the directory structure,
and even copies empty directories.

You can also use Windows Explorer to copy
everything if you have the view->options
set to "Show all files".

Cheers, Mac :)
