eSATA Drive to Drive Copy
Posted 13 March 2008 - 03:51 PM
Seagate offers a drive to drive copy capability with their DiskWizard but I do not know if this would work properly since the HR21-700 uses a derivative of Linux.
Does anyone know what the best drive copy software would be?
I plan to download an .ISO image and burn a CD-ROM.
Thank you for your help.

Do a Bit-By-Bit copy. It will copy all sectors, regardless of what is on them.
I have sucessfully used this to image encrypted HDD's and put that image on to a new HDD. All of the encryption and security stay in place and are not defeated in any way, shape or form. The contents and the security are copied intact.
Should work, but you never know with these kinds of things. May be hidden boot straps, partitions, etc. that we do not know about and Ghost may not see.
