|OK, I am using a program Seagate recommended called Acronis True Image to transfer my failing HDD's contents onto a larger external drive as a bootable clone. Now I'm wondering if I need to be able to boot my computer through my external drive in order to do this. (I don't think my BIOS supports such an option.) Or, will the program have some sort of way to let it copy onto my new HDD? This is SATA, so as I understand it, I don't have the option to make it a slave, correct?|
This is taking forever to copy. There were some errors copying some of the sectors over on my C: drive (bad clusters, I assume) but I hope it doesn't cause any problems with this. I erased my backed up stuff on my external drive to make this clone instead, so I hope to god it works and my HDD doesn't finally kick the bucket tonight.
