I got a virus tonight and decided to recover my system with my external drive. The external drive contains a bootable clone of my C: drive that I made with Norton Ghost. I tried booting from the external drive but I got a blue screen. If it would have worked I would have made another clone back to C: and boot from that. The only copying software I have that runs outside of Windows is a CD-ROM that I got with a Hitachi drive 4-5 years ago. It was able to start the copying process, but it always fails at around 8%. I am almost positive that both of these drives are in good working order, I just need a better copying/cloning software to use outside of Windows.One person I asked said that the clone I made is probably bad, but I am pretty confident that what is on the cloned USB drive is good. Any suggestions? Btw the OS is XP Pro.
