Where you said: "tick in Align Partitions at 2KiB"
that would be the equivelent of: "Align partitions on 2048 Sectors" right? or would it be:
Looks like I need new instructions. The wording has changed.
It is now Align partitions on 2048 Sectors

That's OK. You can't see the files.
Boot from the CD
The CD boots into Partition Work
In the Partitions list, select the Win7 partition and click Resize under the Actions column.
In the Resize dialog box, click OK to error check the file system.
The error-checking process can take a long time. If the hard disk indicator light continues
flickering, the error check is progressing.
When the error check is complete, in the Resize dialog box type 215000 (That's correct. It is about 200 GB)
Click OK, and then click Continue.
The Resize status bar indicates progress. This process can take a long time.
BootIt BM checks for errors once again, after which the Resize dialog box displays a
message that the resize is complete.
Click Close on the Work with Partitions window, click Reboot and remove the CD.
Boot into Win7 and try Copy Drive again.
Have you reset the SATA cables? Probably a good idea before you try Copy Drive again.

Thanks, I will try this now. No, I have not reset my sata cables. We managed to copy two partitions i'm assuming the third has nothing to do with the sata ports.

If it fails again, go to Disk Management and create a NTFS partition (use Quick format) in that 700 or so GB of unallocated space. Then do a One Time backup of the Win7 partition, writing the image to the new partition.
I'll post restore instructions soon.
