Being that it's a windoze box, just drag and drop the directory's!

Re: Clone SCSI Disk to IDE disk

Abdou,

If this is the system/boot drive, drag & drop won't work (of course). For this job, you probably will want to use a product like Norton's "GHOST" or Power Quest's "Drive Copy". I have used these (long ago), but I never tried going from SCSI to IDE.

You mentioned that your source disks are in a raid 1 (mirrored) configuration. The only potential snag I can see is whether the image copy software can talk to the source drive through the RAID controller. My *guess* is that a current version of one of these utilitiies won't have a problem. Maybe somebody with more recent experience will chime in here.

Good Luck,

Dave
