Would like to backup entire computer from one XP computer to another with same system.
1. Which kind of cable is fastest? And would i use a ubs port.
2. Would I use a systems tool or what command?
3. Is there any freeware that would do job better or faster?
Thank you kindly for your kind help and sharing, especially experience.
All my best to you, Dan from FL.

Hi herbalmaster, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

If you have a Seagate or Maxtor hdd Seagate's Disk Wizard has a OEM copy of Acronis's True Image which you can use to clone the drive.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
