I have a 750gb drive with 109Gb on it i.e. windows and I need to clone it down onto an older 320 Gb drive and I need to do it very ,very soon.Speed is of the essence people :-) But if possible free programs would be preferrable .Thanks in advance.  Raven

I am not too sure on speed, but I believe EASEUS Todo Backup (Home or Professional) and DriveImage XML both can restore data from one hard drive to a different hard drive and both are available for free.
