I realize you may not be English speaking as your first language, I also might be wrong in that aspect too. What I was saying was, your rambling might throw some one looking for information on cloning a harddrive off kilter and they'd never understand what you're saying and would go else where looking for the same answer they could have gotten here by asking the same question you did.
Next attempt-Clonezilla-only 1:1-No Boot
To clone 200gb to 1tb attached to Sata toPower over esata card i used Clonezilla. One version was able cloning 1:1. locale to locale. omn SSE-processor Ga-7N400 Pro2. new unprepaired drive used.
During start i must wait till the systemdrive is shown until i can power-on docking-station.
didnt find an option to enlarge. do you? drive was hanging when attached to first sata-slot aka no-boot. at the same location during start as if attached in docking-station during cloning.
Next could be Minitool Partition Wizard 11 free.
NB: During first version i used Trueimage 2014. backup was done partitions enlarged but no boot. TI-tech(see link) is telling one must first make an image. Since i already have a backup i will try with mentioned free tool on the same second 1TB-WD-drive. They have a strange hole-also older one-on left side. on other drives such holes are protected with tape. no here. maybe to adjust air-pressure.

Problem with my GA-7NB400 Pro 2: i cannot leave the external esata-HDD online during boot. It will hang. yes new HDD setup already. quick formatting.
last time i could backup without prepairing new HDD. strange.
Viceversa Pro not working with SSE-Winxp-PC
Viceversa Pro doesnt see my drives on my old SSE-Winxp-PC. so i removed. They do not mention a boot-cd. and they want money after 30-days- 60 usd.
I did make a backup of the whole 200gb-drive and one of the systempartition with Trueimage 2014. Sector by sector copying was not working.
Next step will be cloning part 2: copy drive to new drive as Trueimage told. Direct cloning not possible or unsure. see link in old message.
since i have multiple 1 TB-drives(3 in total) i can now test also clonezilla direct cloning.
Step 2 will restoring systempartition to test if booting is working.
Step 3: Direct cloning(see instructions in link) with clonezilla live.
Will also try if i can boot from usb-stick.
did backups succesfully with Trueimage 2014(systempartition and full drive) but on Ga-7N400 Pro2 i cannot recover/clone fullimage to SATA-hdd sucessfully. data are copied but drive is hanging-as always if first drive does not boot. its hanging at start(drive shown) but stops in sil 3512 SCSI/Raid controller. its a dual ide/sata-MOBO.
tried also other combinations: e.g. recover systempartion on a full backed up Drive. no boot/hanging.
also WLX-89303-docking station used standalone(no pc)can only backup drives but not clone. AND dont buy it: it has contact-problems. often have to put in drive twice. get one which has guaranteed standalone clonefunction, also single-partitions-backup without pc.
the only insurance i have now is a systempartition backup/image. but i have no hdd-duplicate. only different ones which are boot-dead. maybe best saving data from them and reformat and recover from the mentioned drive
