i posted a thread yesterday but now i've got a new problem which i would be grateful for some help with. i've tried coping my old drive which is an ide drive to my new sata one using maxblast, ghost,and powerquest. maxblast says my files are 'rooted to deeply, ,ghost and powerquest both only show my new drive up to copy. i'm a little confused. i'm wanting to copy every thing aswell as the boot sector so its an exact mirror copy. can anyone help or shed a bit of light on this please.
