Anybody use Norton Ghost?
    #4639291 - 09/09/05 08:52 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I have a new 200GB drive that I would like to upgrade my current drive with (clone). But the problem is, I would like to make the new drive into 2 partitions, C: and F:, and I'm not sure if you can copy from drive -> partition, anybody know? I need a sure fire answer hear, cuz I'm not about to wipe out my entire system!

How big is your used drive space on your current drive? If you make your partition on the new drive bigger than the used drive space on your current drive then you should be able to do it with ghost depending on the version of ghost.
A program called Partition Magic will allow you to copy partition to partition. If you want to copy your current drive to another partition you can do that with Partition Magic. Assuming your current drive has one partition it sees the current drive as one partition instead of a drive.
I've used both programs but I like Partition Magic better.
Just remember your destination partition should be larger than your source partition.
Make sure your new drive works the way you want it to before you format or trash your current drive.

Do you have your new drive installed & partitioned & is it recognized by partiition magic?

What version of partition magic do you have?

What operating system do you have on your current drive?

Yes the new drive is installed as a slave and is visible by Partition Magic 8.0 and I am using Windows 2000.

Found out the new drive was dynamic so I reverted to basic and I can now copy partition.

However, it doesn't seem to want to copy my C: partition to the partition I created on the new drive, it wants to create it's own partition.

Also, I don't see anything to make the new partition the active partition. Help?

I also use Partition Magic 8.

What type of partition is your current drive (FAT32 or NTFS)?

What type of partition(s) is your new drive (FAT32 or NTFS)?

NTFS of course I've never had anything before Win2k on this machine

Should I just wipe out the partitions I created, have Part Magic copy the new drive over to it's own partition, switch jumpers, make sure it boots up and then make another partition out of the remaining space?

Yeah, that's probably the best thing to do. I think that's how I did mine. Since you're copying the partition your booting from it's probably going to take a good while to do . If I remember right it will reboot & copy from command line environment, this is why it takes so long.
Did you create rescue disks?

I don't think you can do that with Partition Magic. You would have to use Ghost or something similar to image your drive to cd's. Making rescue disks from Partition Magic allows you to boot to those rescue disks to make partition changes in case a problem develops & your current drive wouldn't be bootable due to partition changes.
