Copy OS Drive to another hard drive

    I don't want to format my OS. But can I copy my current OS drive to a partition on another hard drive ?

    I'm planning on using the hard drive that has the OS in my current PC in another PC.

    Will Reflect do this for me ?

    They have a 14 day trial of "migrate easy" ( I think it what it is) Clone the drive and have fun!

    one more vote for Acronis.

    Very easy to use; cloned several os drives (several which were failing; which is why they were being replaced.) and it hasn't failed yet.

    Wait, are you planning to re-use the OS also, ore just access the data on another PC?
