Why not just drag and drop or copy and paste?

I'm still intrigued why the OP doesn't just want to do this with Explorer, as suggested by hastelloy.

The only way to satisfactorily achieve what you want is to use cloning/imaging software. Some of which is free and usually provided by drive manufacturers on their websites.

Don't even try dragging and dropping. It cannot possibly work as a lot of the most important stuff will NOT be copied across.

I have dragged and dropped many times without any problems. I regularly use this method for photo and video folders.

My mistake.

I, wrongly, assumed the OP was moving the OS from one drive to another.

Must read threads a bit more carefully in future;-)
