I am asking for advice/help on using DI 2002 on my wife's computer. She has essential info that if lost would set back her home business greatly. I have configured her system as follows: Dell Dimension 4100 PIII 866MHz WinXP Pro SP1 Primary HDD is 20GB on C: and 40GB on D: Secondary HDD is 80GB on E: At this point there is no data on the D: partition and in retrospect, I should have made just one 60GB C: partition.:b What I would like to do with DI 2002 is COPY the entire primary HDD to the secondary HDD so that if the primary dies, all I would have to do is swap IDE cables and change the jumper to Master and reboot. In DI, it has a Copy function. Is this what it will do? The manual is sketchy IMHO. Also, I'd like to delete the D: partition and expand the C: partition if possible. I'm thinking that if I COPY just the existing C: partition to the seconday drive and allow it to expand to fill all of the secondary's 80GB, I could then use it as the primary drive and find another 80GB to use as a backup (80GB drives are getting cheap these days!) Any other suggestions? I'd rather not fool with image files as they appear to take a long time to restore and require booting with rescue disks. Isn't my plan alittle more straight-forward? Maybe I'm not seeing this correctly as I'm definitely a Drive Image newbie Sorry for the rambling and thanks in advance for your help.
