Cloning Seagate to Western Digital 2 TB-HDD with clonezilla-WINXP
After heavy problems cloning with True Image 2014 Pro(one can use other than WD drive too) i first ran SFC then switched to Clonezilla first with default. second time with repair-option but it hanged couldnt copy bootloader. at that time from first trial all four partitions were visible.
After second time the volume was gone, so i had it set. First i will retry without formatting.
What do you think? Formatting or not? HDDs are of identical sizes.
WD on external esata-enclosure Orico 6518series 3.5"
SOLVED-halfway with clonezilla
could clone the drive with cloenzilla. will now backup systempartition with clonezilla leaving Trueimage alone for now.
will later try again with takeup on docking-station with new cable.
Or i will wait until win7-system is ready to do the same. i like incremental option in Trueimage.
only cloning was the problem.
I am currently on the cloned drive. only removed data-cable on donor.
Is there a rule-when working with backup-systemdrives systemparition activated or not. why should i deactivate when not used as bootdrive?
cannot backup systempartition with clonezilla to second HDD.
marked systempartition to be imaged but clonezilla only is showing me directories of the actual drive. no chance to save to external drive.
Last Misteries of Clonezilla RESOLVED
Could resolve the misteries mentioned before:
1. one must wait for commands to do next steps. e.g. shutdown or reboot.
2. other than in Trueimage Clonezilla wants DESTINATION FIRST!
3. German help-file differs from original Boot-CD(also in german one can choose).
Helpfile telling one must define where the image must be written.
In CD its telling system must know from where it must be recovered..... Strange and silly!
Now on the search of the perfect CLONEZILLA-version....
