A friend of mine has given me his pc for repair as his main harddrive is abou to die (its ticking) its a sony viao TOWER not laptop.
on his C:/ he has a hidden recovery section from which is was able to reinstall windows and all drives from to see if the problem would persist (promblem is freezing, crashing due to faulty drive)
my question is:
if i were to mirror his drive using someting like Casper XP to another (new) harddrive will that recovery files all be copied over too?
from that point i will then be able to hopefully get the recovery program to reinstall windows media edition and all drives on the new drive.
iv not attempted such thing before so would appreciate some help if possible. i have a new drive which is 500gig (old one is 300gig) and have software to do the transfer - i just need to know if the recovery files will transfer over and work on the new drive if i were able to mirror it?
