    Hi there

    why not use GPARTED instead if you want a bootable USB --it's FREE simply download the ISO and use RUFUS to create bootable USB.

    While it's based on LINUX it's a simple GUI that any windows user will have no difficulty in using. Has no problems with creating / re-sizing Windows partitions etc.

    https://gparted.org/

    For cloning / imaging HDD's FREE MACRIUM is the tool a lot of people on these boards use -- very stable and of course FREE. Works either as bootable or runs on Windows itself.

    Cheers

    Howdy, Jimbo:

    I think you misunderstand.

    I have not expressed any interest in a bootable USB.

    To the contrary... I simply need to transfer DATA files/partition (33.1 GB) from my WIN 7 notebook to the new notebook WIN 10 - Disk 2 - DATA partition (200 GB).

    Thank you,

    ~ Alan

    I'm not totally sure how to answer the solution Alan gave you because I do not know what the "Disk2" is. I hate to assume, but it's probably the disk in the new machine. Is it removable? I can't answer this. Seems a long way to go for a simple operation. As far as compression, Macrium standard is ~60%, so that 33GB would create a ~20GB image. I do not believe it's relevant to the MiniTool Alan solution because it's a straight copy. Bit-by-bit.

    I do not know what, if any, backup system you have in place. The Macrium is also the most regularly and highly recommended software for the job. Minitool is not designed to be a backup solution. They both have their purposes, but one cannot do all the other does. I bring this up up only to point out that installing Macrium would not be a one-time solution, it would serve well as your ongoing backup plan.

    This does not need to be over-engineered.

    Howdy, TC:

    The new notebook has (2) drives:

    1. Samsung 960 EVO 250GB NVMe M.2 SSD
    2. WD Black 7200 RPM 1TB

    Alan, where do you intend to put this Data Partition? I read back, and if I missed it, I apologize. If it's going on the SSD, use Macrium solution. If it's going on the HDD WD, just copy it with Explorer.

    Edit: I see it now, your specs are part of your signature, I didn't notice that before. Sorry. You can add a second set of system specs. TC

    Howdy, ALL:


    In the end... simply pursueing a data partition IMAGE COPY became so time consuming...
    I simply copied my DATA PARTITION FOLDERS to a 32 GB 3.0 USB stick...
    and pasted them to the DATA PARTITION on the new PowerSpec 1510 notebook.

    Not the fastest or most elegant solution... but it got the job done.

    Thank you all for your assistance!

    ~ Alan


    FYI: This issue is RESOLVED.
