I have an IBM Aptiva with Windows 95b on it will all the original software that originally came with it. It looks as though it is new from factory and never used much at all. What I want to do is somehow clone the hard drive so that if it goes bad, all I will have to do is put another cloned drive in and have it back to original again. The problem is I do not know of any good programs to do the job with Win95. I have many programs for XP and even a couple for 98se, but none for Win95. I recently bought an IDE to SD adapter so I was thinking of cloning the drive to an SD and then if something happens just using that to boot. May be it would be a good idea to use that instead so that I can disconnect the original Fireball hard drive to save it and prolong its life. The original drive if in fat16 if that helps at all. Would I have to make the SD card also fat16É I have not used this IDE to SD adapter yet so I am a little foggy on how if works.
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I noticed in Win95 there is a back up program that might work, but I donèt know if it will do what I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
