Hi,

( There used to be an intelligent "copy as needed" command line tool in DOS 3.1 ?? Win 3.?? but it was too useful and got dropped. )

Clonezilla for "dup this".
FreeFileSync for "compare this tree to that" and mirror them, update that one, select changes... Almost works as I'd like.
gparted ( usually running from system rescue disk, bootable CD ) to copy, resize... partitions.

I've usually used Clonezilla copying to a USB connected drive. Haven't had a problem there.
( Make _sure_ you know which drive is which. cloning from one WD 2 TB to a second WD 2TB is dangerous. It will show drive model, and I _think_ serial #, but you are basically running dd with training wheels. NO forgiveness. )

Have fun,

dave
( who _still_ hasn't gotten the time to install the new 4 TB )
