Hello, Is there a way to clone a single partition? If I remember I could do this with driveimage back in the 1990's. Here's why: disk1-partition1 = os (winxp-sp2) disk1-partition2 = data Disk2 is complete clone of disk1: Disk2-partition2 = os (winxp-sp2) Disk2-partition2 = data Now when backup time comes: 1-os partition --- can't do a simple copy, because of system files/registry/metafiles etc, so I'll have to use a cloning/copy partition thing. 2-data partition-- do a simple copy (only changed files) That way When disaster strikes on disk1, I throw disk1 to the garbage then plug disk2 and I'm ready to work immediately, "NO" downtime. Then buy as quickly as possible a new backup drive. Full disk clone each time is no good, takes to much time. Currently 1.5 Hours and will increase as I'll get bigger drives. Drive Image files are better but not by much because there would be a downtime (who knows how long) while I get a new "production/main" drive to restore the backup to. Thanks.
