Unfortunately you can not perform a straight drag and drop from a boot drive. The best option for the preservation of all your data, as well as being much faster, would be to utilize backup software such as Acronis TrueImage Home:

Using the link above you can download a 15 day full feature trial which will allow you to create a backup image (with many options available) of your current C: drive to the media of your choice.

Bad hard drive 90 percent of all computers is HARD DRIVE related. Virus ate the boot sector, partition is damaged or scatched, to many files and the pagefile is on manual, hard drive failure due to age period, 90 percent of all computer failures is Hard Drive related.

Can i transfer information to a mac


If the external hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS file format then the MAC cannot read data off this hard drive.
The FIX..
Connect the USB external hard drive to a Windows computer and copy your data off this hard drive to the computer.
Then format the external hard drive in FAT32 file format. (the MAC can read and write to data to and from a Windows PC)
Now copy the your data from the computer back onto the external hard drive.
Now you can connect the external hard drive to the MAC and download your data to the MAC.

My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

What is pagefile.sys do? And why does it take so much space? Also I wanted Windows XP to look more like Windows 7, can any one help?


Pagefile is reserved space on the hard drive in case you run out of physical memory, the hard drive can write the overflow to the hard drive and not crash the PC.

For the Windows 7 look for xp, Google this: Windows 7 theme for XP. You'll find many themes for free that will make xp look like Windows 7 there.

Pagefile.sys problem


You will have separate pagefiles for each OS. You cannot use a single pagefile for multiple OS installs, they are unique to each OS.

I am trying to download my drive C into a portable drive 160GB and it won't go past what is called a pagefile.sys I have a windows xp


You should copy all of the created files, not the programs. Windows and other programs, once installed, are spread all over the hard drive, not just in the program folder in Program Files. This link is to a site for free disk cloning, imaging and backup programs that might be what you are looking for. Also, if you are looking for a backup service, Carbonite.com is very secure and easy.
