Whatever method of software you use, the destination will have to be a different physical drive or medium (no offense if that is obvious
Are you on a budget? Is there someone that you could borow a HDD from? worst case, you could open the PC, attach a second HDD to the IDE or SATA cable as a "Slave" and transfer your data over.
Also, if you have another PC, you could get a "null-modem" cable and transfer data that way.
If you are going to get a new HDD anyway, then you could do a "File migration."
Or - Are you attempting to make an "exact" duplicate of your HDD's data?
Need clarification? Just post Q's
P.S. I would not pass my data through a third party.
