Cloning / formatting a recovery drive


Active Member
My computer is working fine (for now). I have some empty 500 gb drives. I have one empty sata port left on my rather old desktop mobo. What's the easiest way to format (guess I'd have to do that) and create a second backup drive with all my data on it. I probably asked this on some other forum and no one replied OR (even worse) they suggested something like Easeus which makes no sense to me. I don't mind downloading software if it's easy to use. One big problem is that there aren't any really simple explanations (tutorials) for using the software, so you might end up with missing music, graphics and text files. BAD. Please remember that this is about Windows 7. Thank you
