If I use Acronis or Ghost, can I set up two hard drives, both via USB and clone one to the other?

Both Acronis TrueImage and Norton Ghost let you specify specific directories (on any drive or partition) to backup/copy. Though you could accomplish the same thing with any sync software or a standard copy-and-paste operation.
