    So you are going from Drive0 Partition1 to Drive2 Partition2 ??

    Actually I really can't tell (by the pic) if you have multiple partitions on Drive 0 (ie C drive) and Drive2 (ie E drive)

    By the way, it goes:
    Drive0 Partition?
    Drive2 Partition?

    Just because I had the list, here's some clone programs:

    Norton Ghost (I use this one)
    Acronis True Image (most users like this one, images and backup incrementally)
    Acronis Migrate Easy (Just disk clone - quite good!)
    Drive Image (Basically an alternative)
    DriveImage XML (This one is free!)
    MaxBlast (I haven't used this, but it's free)
    pc-disk-clone (Home Edition: Up to 2GB/min, Pro Edition: Up to 7GB/min)

    Imaging: Backs up your entire system, including Windows and data, plus your partition as well. The image can be stored on removable media, such as DVD. And usually takes under an hour (depending on size of image) to fully recover to a blank HardDrive.

    That's right, although hard to understand you, but right anyway.

    The imaging will image used space onto another drive
    But it will only create one Partition, using the entire drive (if you do not have the Partition switch in the command)
