HDD Imaging Software

Recommended Posts

I'm upgrading to an SATA HDD and I don't want to reinstall my OS.

 

Does anyone know of a free HDD imaging program?

Hi

 

I think you can use Data Life Guard for this (DLG is a free download from Western Digital).

 

This is a quote from the DLG help file:

 

"When copying from partition to partition, if the destination partition is a primary partition, Drive-To-Drive copy will make the partition bootable. This allows you to migrate your operating system to a new drive even if the drive was not partitioned using Data Lifeguard."

 

You can download DLG here.

 

Cheers,

I did a bit of research and decided to get Acronis True Image 8 - it's not free, but for about $30 at the egg it worked great for me. You can resize partitions as part of the cloning process. It is also useful for backups.

Acronis Ture Image for sure. You don't even need to install it (image can be created from boot CD-ROM).
