Partition Clone Program
I've used Norton Ghost 8 in the past to clone an OS Partition on my hard drive using a boot floppy but I tried to use it on the latest machine I built and it locks up in the menus, so maybe it doesn't like the way I have it setup. I can use the keyboard arrow keys once or twice and then the machine locks up and nothing works and I have to hit the reset button. So what else is a good program to use.
What I want to do.
Clone Partition #1 to Partition #2 for restoring later.
How I have it setup.
Western Digital 640GB Black ( SATA)
Partition #1 - 500GB - Windows XP SP3 OS Partition
Partition #2 - 100GB - Data Storage.
Acronis True Image 11 Home says it can't find a hard drive when I boot with an ISO image I made from it, then the Windows Version says it only works with 2 hard drives. So it seems to be out.
Is there a SOLID program I can use to Clone Windows XP on Partition #1 and store the image on Partition #2 for reimaging the first partition later?
EDIT: I took a look at Acronis True Image 2009 and it seems to have what I want, that being it shows it can clone a single partition. Now if it will allow me to clone partition #1 to partition #2 it will give me what I need. I'll report back after I try using it.
