Been trying all over asking this question, but, I never receive an answer except for using a ATA to SATA converter. BUT, I don't want to ues one. All I want to have a backup as well as a transfer of data. So, please can I just have an yes, no, or maybe answer? Thank You.
I have a Win98 computer that has seen better days.
I want to transfer the HD that contains the Win98 OS/Applications/Files compleatly to a new computer. However, the old dive is a ATA while the new one is a SATA. And neither MB supports the others drive.
My solution is to use a disk image software to "copy" the ATA drive to a DVD (or DVDs) and then copy the DVD (DVDs) to the new computer's SATA drive.
(The new(er) computer already has Windows 7. In this case the HD with the old WIN98 OS/Files would be on a totally seperate HD).
gparted is a partition editor, not an imaging tool.
Clonezilla may work for you. It does have some limitations, such as an inability to restore an image to a drive that's smaller than the original source drive, and does not have the ability to expand an image to fill a larger drive. Both are limitations of the Linux tools used.
