My daughter wants to find a program that will allow her to make an exact copy of the hard drive on her laptop. Does anyone know of such a program?

thanks, dianna

Oh she has windows xp on her laptop.

Acronis True Image.

Not free, but very good and very simple to use.

Hi , You would be wise not to use any type of registry cleaner . They cause more harm than good . I agree with Alumbagh to use Acronis True Image. :thumbsup:
