    I'm looking for a free, easy to use cloning program that will work with Windows 7 64 bit.
    I just want to ba able to clone my hard drive so that in the event of failure I can plug in the 2nd hard drive and continue with my work.
    Thanks.

    Image for DOS using the Straight Copy choice.

    If you use the Scale Size choice it still works but you need to do a BCD Edit from BING.

    Have you considered a mirrored raid array? The secondary member is an exact duplicate of the first. And best of all it is not dependent on a software for it to work. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    What I wrote wasn't informative enough. Sorry.
    I want to be able to plug in my backup hard drive and have a program that will transfer all new stuff, including changes to the operating system, from the main drive to the backup drive.
    Thanks.
