Acronis True Image is free, at least to do basic functions. Seagate has a version that I think is made by the same folks.

My shit's backed up. I have a 465gb drive in my T61. 500gb drives are at least as much as a 2tb external. Actually, I just found a refurbished 640gb T61 drive for $40 shipped, so I went with that.

Oh, also, the Lenovo storage diag-ware said the drive passed all but the last test. Which was such that it wouldn't repair the bad sectors: 'for safety reason, this can't be done'.

Another way would be disk2vhd then use Vhd2disk to restore the image. I personally use SSR2013 Desktop.

You could also use a command line program called DISM that is included with Windows. You would want to do this offline from a Win PE disc. You would have to use DiskPart to prepare the new HDD / SSD though.


Scifi frauds. SF illuminates.
