Clone a disk?


Recommended Posts

I'm more familiar with Windows, but was planning to use a usb live linux because I can't clone the disk I'm booting from, right?

The problem is it's a laptop hard drive I'm looking to clone and I only have one usb to ide adapter (to plug in the second disk).

EDIT: Also, the original disk is a bit flakey so the less fiddling with it the better.

For some reason I thought you were trying to clone the disk using a seperate machine, thus nessitating the need to image to a compressed file, swap the drive and image the file back to the 2nd disk. Disk-to-Disk would be a far better approach though.
