Windows 7: Clone disk, arbitrarily

Clone disk, arbitrarily

Does anyone know of a software that can clone a partition/drive with the Windows system folder, but only what you choose?

In other words, I want to copy my current install of 7 to another drive so I can add it as another boot choice, but my original has all other stuff that I don't want to include like media files, while doing so.

I only used an old version of Ghost before to copy a system drive like that and it did not have the option to choose the folders. Only full drive.

So any recommendations?

Hi there
Try Acronis True Image. So long as the TARGET disk is large enough it doesn't have to be the same type of disk etc.

However to do what you really want you should have ALREADY arranged to have ONLY the OS on a partition and all your DATA etc on other drives / partitions.

Acronis also has a "Universal restore" which means you can even restore your Windows system to different hardware -- you'll need to indicate which drivers it should load however.
