External HDD causes blues screen of death
I prepare for the worst - a HDD can fail at anytime. I have a PCI card giving me extra SATA ports, and I have a SATA data cable and power cable hanging out the back of my PC. I have my replacement drives already and regularly plug them in (PC shut down) and clone my HDDs.
The HDD with the partitions for System files and Program files is 80GB (more than big enough). My spare drives are 500GB - overkill.
I have a Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 80GB drive which I thought I would use to clone the 80GB drive.
Running disk-clone with this drive ends in the blue screen of death. Without fail.
But this drive used to be mounted in the PC and worked fine. Also, if I use it as an external USB drive in a case it works just fine.
My 500GB drives clone just fine as well.
Any suggestions? (I don't want to have to use the USB interface card each time to do a back-up).
