I just got a 1tb drive and had a 300gb & 500gb. I pretty much have a substantial amount of music & stock video between the 300 & 500 drives and intent to copy all contents of both drives to the 1tb drive since I want to re-arrange the partitions and reformat them for my intended future use. In the past when I've copied MANY GB's I wasn't sure things went 100% well and by formal discovery noticed 50% of my files were garbled. I just realized maybe my best bet is doing a plain backup with shadowprotect and doing a verification but this will also require a restore procedure and a ton of time. Also I have winrar and there is an option to delete files allready archived, put recovery record and test archived files but I will also result in a zip or rar file and it will require a process & time to unravel the package. So, is there any copy software out there so I can avoid the hassel of a restore or decompression procedure, have and corruption/outage nightmares en-route and have the security & integrity of a backup verification all while simply copying without any translation Thanks!
