Indeed your very best shot. A great peace of software that will safe you a lot of time and frustration!!! I'm a very satisfied user myself.
How easy is this program to use? I know almost nothing about Windows. His failing drive sea to pass the windows drive check, and boots up fine, so I'm hoping that installing a new drive in one of his open bays, and just cloning it will work. How does one set this up with this software?
Very easy. You simply tell it where to save the image file. Then when you want to restore, simply pick the image file (if more than one), and tell it which disk or partition to put it on (pre format with FAT, WinClone will take care of the NTFS part).
It couldn't be easier to use, and it has worked perfectly the many times I have used it to move Windows to different drives/SSDs.
Worth every penny IMHO to avoid the tedium of Windows install/update/reboot/reboot/reboot ...
So do I run it under OSX, or while in Windows?
It is an OS X app ... you will run it under OS X for both creating the image, and writing it to the target disk.
Once it is written to the target drive, you will reboot into Windows using "startup disk" or using the "Option key while booting" method just as you did with the old Windows disk.
Just format it as "MS-DOS(FAT)" and WinClone will do the rest.
There are on-screen instructions which will lead you through the process.
Doing it now. Thanks so much for your help! I'll let you know how it goes as soon as it's done.
He only had 275 gig of space for the disk image, I hope that's enough room.
Then he's going to need about 750 gig!
Would it warn you that you didn't have enough space when you began the process?
Can I just store the disk image on the new Bootcamp 2 TB drive? Then delete it when it's finished restoring? That should be enough space.
