Acronis -- Hmmmmmm afraid they have gone backwards quite a bit lately.

Would never try to clone from within windows anyway.

How can you not clone a drive to another drive? If you did it to a partition it would be a Copy, not a Clone. You would use a boot disk to do it anyway.

That's what I was thinking. C/P?

Actually had that happen when playing about with Acronis earlier this year, booted from the CD you can make, it went through the motions,cloned to another drive, but total failure, the sizing was right -- that was about all.
