    I want to exchange the contents of 2 disks -one is fat32(win98) the
    other is NT with 2 partitions
    I put the NT disk in a win98 PC and to begin with I was thinking of
    making an image of the win32 disk
    at the non-system partition of the NT disk but
    trueimage under win 98 cannot see NT disk as a destination in 'my
    within the 'create image' wizzard (although it can be selected as a
    'Adding a new disk' is not helping either and in 'Disk Clone' I cannot
    clone the fat disk
    (to 2nd NT partition)without emptying the NT disk first(but then I lose
    its data)!
    Thus I see no way to swap two disk without using some third disk as a
    temp storage but then from where am I going to be booting from in the
    process-the rescue floppies?
    If you have some advice please let me know-the best thing I can think
    of is if trueimage could enable me to clone fat32 contents to
    NT partition, then clone NT system partition to the mentioned fat32
    and in the end just make the cloned fat32 partition(residing on NT
    disk) bootable somehow ..

    If you`ve got enough room on the win98 disk.
    1. Move the NT partition files to it.
    2. Reformat NT partition to fat32.
    3. Do what you want to do. They can `see` each other now.

    Thanks for the answer , however there is room for fat32 disk at 2nd NT
    partition but not vice versa,since fat32 disk is much smaller!

    Use your bootable rescue media (floppies) the program will see all discs.
    You can create images from the rescue floppies if you created a full set.
