I will be performing the cloning/backup entirely from within the Windows 7 pc. Could you please how i can implement this command "dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb" specifically from within windows 7? It looks like a unix command statement (after a quick google search)and i don't think i can issue this command from the windows command prompt.
The sole purpose of my objective is to insert the new cloned disk(which will be of the same size) into the original machine in case it crashes.
Thanks once again
Sorry bethy1234, i forgot to specify that command needs to be performed under any live unix variant, like ubuntu, mint, etc, but it works flawless all the time if you follow that route
