    Variety of reasons. Maybe you don't have the correct software. Maybe you are using the software that you do have incorrectly. We can't really tell why you can't clone the partition without knowing what software you are trying to use to do it, and a screenshot of disk management showing the hard drives in question would help.

    hi robert , maybe the 160(148)gb hdd is not total 148gb . maybe the 160(148)gb hdd < 147 gb . if i am right , you can format the 160(148)gb , at least , the 160(148)gb> 147gb .
