Are backups movable from HDD to HDD

Can you make a copy of a certain dates full system backup w/system image from one HDD/folder to another empty drive in the system using simply the normal "copy to" command with all system files visible ?

Thanks...TR

Hi,

It doesn't matter where you store your backup file even you copy/move it from 1 HDD to another. When you need to use the backup file Windows Backup will still treat it the same
