PCstats Q & A - A clone of your own - PCstats Q & A - A clone of your own

Our lucky thirteenth Q & A of the week comes from Matthew via the PCstats reader feedback page . If you have a question you need answered right away, try our friendly forums for help too.

Q: I am about to purchase a new western digital raptor SATA hardrive. my current hardrive is a seagate SATA. In your how to clone a hard drive guide, you did not mention anything about SATA. I was wondering, how can you clone a SATA hard drive?

A: The only difference between SATA and IDE hard disks as far as the cloning process is concerned is whether the cloning software can read from SATA devices. Assuming you already know how to physically install your new SATA drive, you simply need to verify that the software you want to use will read SATA drives. Norton Ghost 2003 or later should work, as will Acronis True Image 7.0 or later.
