I wish to make an exact copy of a hdd, not a compressed one or an archive, to an external drive connected via usb. Looking on the net there seems to be plenty of cloning software but none of them state external drives so unless I download it and try I don't know, does anyone know of something suitable.

I believe Clonezilla should do the trick .

Macrium Reflect Free - I have this installed. I just started it up without USB drive attached - tried to clone but no destination available (not surprising).

Attached USB hard drive, restarted Macrium, and on going to clone was offered USB drive to clone to. So I guess it supports it OK.
