My hard drive failed on me last night. Luckily I did an image only a couple of days ago. I've ordered a new drive and when it arrives this is what I'm planning to do: Clone my second drive (which is my old primary drive with the xp operating system on it - it reflects my system as it was when I got a new drive, the one which has just failed, a couple of years ago) to the new drive. Swap the drives over and use the image above to update the new drive. Is this the most efficient way of getting back to where I was? Any comments/suggestions gratefully received. When cloning, is there any need to format the new drive or do you just let ATI do its thing - I can't remember what I did last time! I'm using ATI 9.
