@Drummerboy

EasyADF will allow you to backup whole partitions or directories easily into a LHA file with a few clicks.  Here is the tutorial:

This may be useful for users that want to backup their entire System partition to another hard disk or Compact Flash card for safekeeping.

The good old system "copy" command is still the fastest and easiest IMHO. Wayyyy faster than archiving everything to lha.

Just make similar partitions on new HD like you have on your old (you can still make them different sizes and do other tuning which will be better for new HD). Then open shell and copy every partition to new destination with line like this:
Copy oldpartition:#? newpartition: ALL CLONE QUIET

If you have some assigns etc pointing to partitions with certain names, you can change the names of new partitions back to old after you've removed the old HD for example. It can be done to both device and volume names if needed.

Ok,

Just for update the post.

After try many combinations, i set the new HD as Master and the old as Slave, then booted the OS from Floppy disk, with thats HDs setup the HDtoolbox reconognize both disks, then i can make the partitions and format the disk. After that i use Disk Master and Copy every files and Drawers and the final was any Old HD Copy Exactly in the new HD!..
 

Thanks for the help, suggests and comments.

Quarterbackup Tools has Quarterbackup and System Mover which are suitable for easy backup and system transfer from hd to another.  Works atleast with OFS/FFS/SFS.
