MaxBlast Plus II that came with your drive or download.

EZ-Copy lets you make an exact duplicate of your existing hard drive

Ghost or Drive Image are your best options. If Dos is a problem for you, use Drive Image.

I use a nice little free app that goes into the command folder, it's called xxcopy. It'll copy everything on the drive to another drive, even 'in use' files. But it would take a bit of typing to spell it all out for you.

If you choose to go with xxcopy, I'll do the typing, if not, forget it :D
Must be FAT32 as well. I've never tried it with NTFS

sorry fish, I didn't see your post. Those ideas sound ok as well.
