    Substitute for GHOST 11.5.1 ?


    Hi all,
    We are french computer repairmans. These recent years, we use ghost 11.5.1 to clone failed drive/windows (windows won't boot, black screen, slowness, etc). With 1 step, clone is done on a new disk (regardless of the new disk size). Now, GPT brings difficulites... We loss a lot of time, and that take 2 steps.


    • We use HDD Raw Copy Tool to past bad block. This force to use a same size disk, and it's very long.
    • We use Acronis to clone on a smaller disk ( cheaper for our custumers )


    We must find a solution !! There 4 things that we absolutely need in one software :


    • ignore bad blocks
    • clone on a different size, with possiblity to resize partition before the clone
    • faster than a raw copy
    • Possibility to save/extract an image file (like .vmdk with ghost)


    We test twenty and more software, we won't find the "Graal"
    Any suggestions ?
    Thanks

    When you say 'ignore bad blocks' you mean to copy the disk as it is, with all the faults?

    When the clone finish on the new disk, the PC boot up again.
