  • Software to copy vista partition to another drive

    Hi all

    I've got xp and vista dual botting on my machine. I've just bought a new HD and want to move all the partitions across. Loaded up partition magic 7 and it says the drive with xp and vista on is bad.

    I guess it aint compatible with vista prep'ed drives. Can anyone recommend a piece of software that will do (preferable free!! )

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't looked, but I think Acronis has a trial version.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      Just downloading the trial - hope it is only limited to 15days and not any functionality is missing.

        Trial is fully functional for 15 days but didnt work. It may have been the drive i was going from was 200gb and the one i was going to was 160 - but it did say it would resize the partitions.

        I rebooted - it took about 1 hour to do but then after rebooting again Vista failed immediately and XP got to the point where you login but no login prompt ever appeared.

        I may try again with just one partition at a time.
