My wife just bought a brand new Seagate E-IDE drive and would like me to \nclone her entire 30GB drive over to the new one. What program is the best \nand easiest to use? She's made backups using the system within Windows XP \nProfessional but I've never used it - nor any cloning program to restore a \ndrive let alone clone one. The only program I've ever even had experience \nwith is Acronis, but that's at work and just to run backups ot external \nHDDs.\n\nWhat would be the easiest and most inexpensive method for doing this? Would \nthe Backup program within Windows work? And what's the best method for \nformatting the new drive? Anytime I've done that before it's been to load \nWindows XP Pro right onto it as a clean install, never as a re-install or \ncloned drive.
