The replacement hard disk for the Linux/Windows dual boot PC has arrived. I will be putting the new drive on through a USB connector so that I transfer the old drive's contents to the new one, then install the new one. There are a variety of freeware programs out there for doing the transfer from the old disk to the new one (a process known as cloning, because you have to get the boot sectors right). CloneMaxx looks attractive because it supposedly works with multiple partitions, not all of them Windows. Does anyone have experience (good or bad) with any of the freeware cloners?
