  1. Hi

    I need to copy the entire contents of a cumputer running windows XP to an external hdd (USB connection). What would be the best way to do this? I could do something as simple as a copy-paste, but I know Windows pops up these warnings about copying system files and protected files etc., and stops the entire copy operation. I can't sit in front of the computer and watch the copy operation for hours... :(

    Any ideas?

    I'll try that. As for now, I found another way to do it: Using a LiveCD (Linux Mint) I'm able to copy all the files, even windows system files, protected files and files in use.
    But the program you mentioned looks interesting.
