I've just reformatted n installed the XP op system n programs. Now I want to clone the boot/programs drive. I would appreciate clarification on the following - The boot drive is 80gig SATA and using 12gigs at the moment I'd like to use a 60gig ATA 133 as the BU drive Am I right in assuming I need to partition the 80gig so it is not larger that the 60. Or should I clone the whole 80gig drive tr a spare 120gig SATA drive. I have partitioned it to be just under 60gigs -58 to be precise. As a consequence of partitioning, there is a remaining 19gigs now called F drive - I want to hide that or somehow make it invisible. How to? I just want the cutdown 80gig to register - the 19 gigs is of no importance to me at all. Should I have partitioned this drive or not have bothered? Your advice is welcomed. Thx BTW, where do I put in my system specs on the forum. I couldn't find it.
