what do you need this for ?
Need to mirror my office's server HDD...it's gonna fail soon.
so you need something to copy and paste then ? if you can find another HD then just transfer the things to there .. you won't need a mirroring application for that - I looked at a couple of places and free is not what I found .. If it is a swappable raid configuration, just take the bad drive out and put a new one in, then it will rebuild itself ..
P.s Nathan in your spec it says you have a 60mb hard drive, I think you mean gb?
Haha...hadn't noticed that error before...thanks! Yes, I need something similar to ghost, but it has to be free...any ideas?
There are no apps like ghost that are free, get a second HD from the local PC store, and use Windows backup if anything, or just move the files from one drive to another.
Ghost comes with Systemworks which comes with loads of other useful utils and sells dirt cheap (especially older but still useful versions) so might as well buy that.
You could'nt give me a Symantec App - This is better:
or you could take a demo/trial version of something like partition magic? Just a thought, it only needs to be free while you take the backup, right?
Partition Magic don't back things up .. It is used to partition the hd
You would need something like Norton Ghost or PowerQuest DriveImage.
G4U is a freeware NetBSD based hdd cloner, though a little more complicated then Ghost or DI: http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/
Don't you have a second hand computer trader like in Australia?
Anyway, for a comprehensive list - check out
