I'm an MSDos user from decades ago. Windows 8.1 still carries MSDos commands at the Command Line.

Is it still possible to make a mirror image of a HDD internal using either XCOPY or DISKCOPY commands.

Will it work with a 1TB HDD with 316GB used space?


Thanks for your help,

No, you will end up with lots of missing files.


Use a disk imaging program like Macrium Reflect Free.
