I have an old Dell Dimension 8300 with some important info on it. I'm still using it for business purposes until I get my new PC built later this year. It is currently running two IDE drives, the first one partitioned into a 60GB boot partition and a 60GB storage/game partition. The other drive is pure storage. At this point I'm having a single bad sector on the primary drive. I know exactly where it is and what file is affected (a photo I am not concerned about.) I'd like to clone the drive to a new one before it has any other errors. Drive Backup will not give a successful backup due to this error. It locks up 9 seconds from completion each time. I have a 500GB SATA drive on hand and the 8300 does have a SATA controller on board. I'm wondering if it is possible to clone the IDE drive directly to the SATA drive outside of Windows XP (the 8300 evidently can't make use of the SATA drive unless it is the boot drive so I can't do this inside of Windows.) I have tried to preinstall the Promise FastTrack S150 Tx2 drivers (which I believe are the correct drivers for this system) to the current install of windows to avoid any potential SATA driver errors. Does this have any chance of working or will I have issues since I don't currently have XP installed on a SATA drive?
