Clone C-partition of 1st HD onto C-partition of 2nd HD possible?
Ok, I have both Acronis True Image [fee] and Macrium Reflect [free]. I understand both can:
-- clone a whole physical hard-drive onto another whole physical hard-drive
-- make an image of any HD en toto, or make an image of each partition -- [saving image] onto another HD, ext or int.
I can't find a way to "tell" either program what I wanted to do:
Clone C-partition of 1st HD onto the C-partition of the 2nd HD. Is there a way to do this, if not with Acronis or Macrium - what program?

I'm guessing there are other partitions on these HDDs that you don't want affected by the cloning? Are both C-partitions exactly the same size?

I forgot to mention earlier -- after cloning 1st HD onto 2nd HD, 2nd HD is Disabled via CTL-PNL/Device Manager.

Yes, both HDs and their partitions are exactly the same size.

I used to use a program call DriveCopy that would selectively copy partitions. I don't know if it's around anymore. I would think acronis would do it but I've never used it for that purpose.

Is the second drive blank by chance? If so just copy the entire drive and delete the partitions you don't want.

The DriveCopy I used was by PowerQuest. After googling I noticed there's unrelated software of the same name by minitool. I've never tried it but the description sounds like it might work out for your needs.

I got one DriveCopy trial-ware, haven't installed it yet.
Trying to get MiniTool DriveCopy, unsuccessful so far.
