My desktop PC (running WinXP and ATI 9) has an 80GB hard drive with two partitions, C: (about 30GB) and D: (about 50GB). I have a spare (but slower) 30 GB hard drive which I just installed as E: I want to either clone my existing C-partition onto E: or create an image backup of my C-partition and restore it to E: Then in an emergency, I could change hard drive jumpers and cables and bootup with the 30GB drive. Please note that I want E: to contain only that which is on my C-partition, including the MBR, boot-track, etc. Should I use cloning or imaging to produce the desired result? Also, are there any special precautions or procedures that I should be aware of? PS., I do have an external USB dirve which I normally use to store my image files.
