I installed this program and although it has a built in promotion of Run
Time's other software, it works well and has a very simple interface.
It seemed that it would probably be a good way to get around XXCopy's
limitations until I noticed the following:
* You need to make the new partition active (in Windows Disk Management).
* You also might need to set a new Disk ID using DriveImage XML.
* You will probably have to reactivate Windows and some other
These might not be deal killers though. Hard to tell yet.
