I would like to backup a bad drive and replace it with a new drive (160gb WD in both cases)

I cannot back up the system image from the bad drive to the new drive (hangs up).

The bad drive was an upgrade from Vista to Windows 7.

What can I do?

It depends what you mean by bad drive, but I am going to take it to mean that there is data that is not physically readable? If that is the case, then you are not going to be able to back up the data since the bad disk can not be read in order to retrieve the information. Are there any errors being generated?
