|grasshopper...thanks for your ideas, but I don't want another partition. I actually don't want any partitions. I have a whole nuther drive to back up to. I know a lot of ppl favor partitions, but that's just not how I'm wired. I appreciate your time and your ideas.|
DAVEINCAPS...the DiscCopy can work with any drive same size or bigger. It did a sector to sector copy, not a partition to partition copy, but the result was the same. It basically copied the entire drive, as the old drive was 250G & new one is 500G, but only 250 shows up with the rest unallocated. My son actually did the setup so I don't know what he selected. He did not realize it would strand the extra space. He's never done it before. He has ppl at work that do that stuff for him. Must be nice. I have you guys!!
What I really want is all my stuff copied but not partitioned. Is that possible since it is partitioned now?
