Clone disk means cloning all partitions and their files and other valid data to another disk. In the process of cloning, PartitionGuru will create partitions with same size and type on the target disk in line with partition structure of the source disk. Then it'll copy files and data in partitions one by one. PartitionGuru provides three modes of cloning data.
1.Copy all sectors.
Copy all sectors of the source disk to the target disk from beginning to the end. It doesn't judge whether there is valid data in the source sectors. This method will copy a large quantity of invalid data, thus it'll take more time. But this is the most complete copy method which can copy all the data of the source disk to the target disk.
If the file system type of a partition is not supported by PartitionGutu, when copying partition, PartitionGuru will adopt the mode copy all sectors, which guarantees partitions of source disk and target partition are the same.
It is required that the capacity of target disk is no smaller than the source one.
To copy disk, please click menu items "Tools"- "Clone Disk" and PartitionGuru will pop up the following "Clone Disk" dialog box:
At the same time, PartitionGuru will pop up a dialog box for selecting a source disk and a target disk, as shown below:
After selecting a source disk and a target disk, PartitionGuru will go back to the "Clone Disk" dialog box. Choose one copy mode and click "Start". PattitionGuru will show the following warning message:
Make sure that there's no important data on the target disk or you've backed up important data, and then click "OK". PartitionGuru will try locking all partitions on the two disks, if partitions on the source disk can not be locked (usually including partition where operating system or PartitionGuru is installed), PartitionGuru will show the following warning message:
If you still want to copy disk without locking it, you can click "Yes" to start the copy process.
