I have an older PC running OS/2 and need to clone and/or image the hard drive. Which software utility will do this for me? Thanks

Clonezilla Live CD can do it but because the HPFS OS2 OS is not supported in Clonezilla you would need to use the sector by sector option using Advanced mode. Doing this would require you to have a disk as least as large as the one you are imaging or cloning.

Edit: If this is very old hardware you may have problems with the newer hard drives. I believe there was a size limit on hard drives because of firmware limitations but I can't be sure about that.
