Drive-to-Drive Driect?

Post by schandor » Fri Nov 05, 2004 2:27 pm

Hi all,
Is there a way for PartImage to essentially mirror a drive?

In other words, instead of creating an image file, it would simply make a block-for-block copy to another location.

REASON:
My friend has got an 80gb drive that is going bad with a single partition (NTFS). He bought a new drive of the same size. My orginal plan was to resize the partition on the original drive to just over what is using via QtParted. Unfortuntely QtParted gives me an error while trying to resize so I'm stuck with one really big partition (so I can't use the extra space to put the image file). Anyone have any thoughts? If it's unclear I'll gladly try to clarify.

Thank you.

Sounds to me like you should be looking at ntfsclone, rather than partimage.
