Hi

I want to clone my hard drive to an external firewire drive. I'd lik
the firewire drive to be bootable as well, in case my PC drive fails.
What is the best software to do this

Thank you

Fran

The best hardware to do this is MAC.

Thats not necessarily the best approach. If you image
it to the external firewire drive instead, you may well
be able to have more than one image on it instead,
and that is quite desirable in some situations.

That involves a lot more than just what you use to clone the drive.

If the motherboard etc cant boot from the firewire drive,
there is nothing any cloning software can do about that.

I prefer True Image myself. You can download
a free trial copy off their web site.
