The easiest, fastest, and best way to do this is to use Symantec Ghost. Hook both the 'image' hard drive and the 'clone' hard drive in one machine and boot the computer using the Ghost CD. Setup the CD to copy from one location to the other (be careful you are copying the right one or all you data will be lost!) and you will end up with a perfect copy. If you don't trust this method, you can always hook up both hard drives, and copy files manually from inside the operating system, although that would take days longer than about half an hour using Ghost for 7 hard drives.

Having two optical drives is just another configuration for computers. A user can get a computer with one or two optical drives or more.

Why is there no b drive in your computers?

There are a millions answers to this question, and I have found non that answer this detail about no B drive. The cool thing even before 3 1/2 inch disks, is you could just have 1 floppy drive and still be able the copy from one floppy to another. The B drive can work as a virtual drive. If need to copy somehting and had only one drive, you would issue a copy command and it would hold the information you want to copy on a virtual B drive. Place the original in, "copy to b drive" take out the original and put in a blank and it would copy the files to your B drive. This we found was always a cool tool. No need for a second floppy drive.

Why computer has not B drive?

The A: and B: drives on a desktop computer are reserved in the BIOS for floppy disk drives. As most computers only come with one floppy disk drive only the A: drive will be visible in file explorer. If a second floppy disk drive is fitted then both A: and B: drives will be visible. Computers used to have a B: drive. It was the second floppy drive. Since people no longer copy from one floppy to another, the B: drive (and on some newer models the A: drive) has become obsolete.

How do you get information onto a hard drive?

You just copy your data to the hard drive somehow. It is just a matter of finding out how the system identifies the hard drive and accessing that device.For instance, in MS-DOS, if you wanted to copy something to the hard drive you could issue a command such as:COPY A:\*.* C:\That would copy the entire contents of the root directory of the floppy in drive A: to the root directory of the hard drive identified as drive C:.On Windows, if you have something on a CD in drive E: that you want to copy to drive C:, you could just drag and drop it. Just open up the 2 windows that you want to copy between, make the selections on the source folder, and drag them to the window of the destination folder.
