Are you trying to maintain an OS partition? or are you trying to copy all of your documents from one drive to another? Obviously copy and pasting has it's limitations when it comes to NTFS permissions, boot sectors, etc.
Get the DOS version of Ghost 7.0, boot into DOS w/ WinME bootdisk from bootdisk.com, put in the floppy w/ ghost and run it. You wan to do a disk to disk copy. It'll take around 30 sec to 1 min depending on HD size. Fast and easy.
