    Would someone be kind enough to PM me directions to clone a dying hard drive. I've read through the threads, and there is so much conflicting information about which version of software to use and which commands are correct, that I would ask someone who's done it to PM the steps he/she used. I am using an external 2 TB drive and going to a new external 2 TB drive.

    Thank you.

    Find the copy and replace thread. It's very long. Follow the first set up steps with the specific original gparted version it mentions. That's exactly what I use and works every time. If you use newer versions then it seems more stuff has to happen usually.

    Thanks for the direction. I will see if I can wrest the computer away from my wife long enough to work on this over the weekend.
