If this "other" HDD is in another machine you can copy/ transfer your data by using backup software such as veritas or the nt backup supplied with NT4.

Not with Ghost 6.0 and not even with later versions of Ghost with certainty that you are duplicating everything. The whole thing about GHOSTing a system is that it has to be down in order to copy every single file, sector, byte on the hard drive sothat you can restore the complete system from the Ghost file onto a completely bare hard drive. In order to do it, you're going to have to find some time that you can schedule enough down time to create the Ghost image. Depending upon the size of your server drive(s) this could take some time - my experience is that it takes about 20 minutes to Ghost a 1-1.5 GB hard drive, so if your PDC has large storage capacity, it could take a while. . .Hope this helps, even if it's not the answer you wanted!

Are you trying to duplicate your data or the whole server image? If it is just the data you can use "robocopy.exe" from the NT resource kit, it backsup and copies all files and folders retaining permissions as well.
Good luck!
