your site seems to be broken too copy/paste help

Tried to edit or view my post and it didn't work talked about zero object and also url not found on this server (whatever all that means)

anyway not sure if this was posted so I'll post it again....

How do you force copy/paste an entire drive WITHOUT having to answer questions like "file is a system file do you really want to copy" or "folder already exists do you want to copy". In other words is there a way to Xcopy *.* [destination] /E /C /Q /H /R /Y using a windowsxp copy/paste command or will it simply work to use xcopy from the cmd window?

More about site broken copy paste
  1. if you are talking about copying one drive onto another use a program like macrium reflect and clone your drive to another.
  2. I can't reply because this site is broken, but the problem with cloning is first the old drive is 250 gig so unless I want only half a drive I can't clone (right?).

    Also number 2 is that the drive is broken (or at least it stopped functioning so I pulled it until I could get a new drive to emergency copy onto)

    If the drive is broken, how will you copy anything out of it anyway?

    If it's not broken, and the drive is full with data, you can't copy it to a smaller drive no matter what command you use.

    Just a regular Copy does not use xcopy at all, totally different things. If you already know how to use xcopy, just use that, but the issue is again, if you say the drive is broken, no command will work with it.

    You can also copy only the used space of a drive during a cloning process, take a look at AOMEI Partition Assistant http://www.disk-partition.com/resource/clone-os-to-new-hard-drive.html.
  4. Thanks I just wanted to know if xcopy would work or if I would have to use windows copy/paste {if indeed this drive isn't broken but merely confused}
