How best to clone the C: HDD (W98FE) ?

19 posts in this topic

1) Either within the single PC - i.e. 'C: master' cloned to 'D: (slave)'

XXCOPY 2.96.8 - xxfw2968.zip can do it from a running 98SE system, and the copy will boot OK usually.

2) And/Or, if possible, similar over a network. (W98 PC to W98 PC)

XXCOPY 2.96.8 can do it from a running 98SE system, to another drive shared over the network, and the copy will usually still be able to boot OK the original (=source) machine, if brought to it.

BUT the target drive will need to exist beforehand, i.e. the disk needs to be partitioned and formatted before, in order to have a drive that can be network connected.

Again all the issues are in preparing the "base" and/or creating "first" clone, once done that everything is fine.
