Copy a Disk to a Disk Wizard

The Copy Disk to Disk Wizard steps you through the process of transferring data from one disk or partition to another with an option to resize partition(s). Essentially it is like creating a disk image of one partition or a whole disk and subsequently restoring it to another disk or partition except there is no intermittent image created.

You may use the Copy Disk to Disk Wizard to make a copy of the same configuration from one hard drive onto multiple other hard drives. For example, you may duplicate a hard drive configuration over several workstations on a network. If you are trying to recover data from a damaged hard drive or partition, you may clone the damaged partition to a number of other hard drives in order to experiment with different data recovery techniques on the copy rather than on the original.

To open the Copy Disk to Disk Wizard, do one of the following:

  • In the main program window, double-click Copy Disk to Disk.
  • From the Tools menu, choose Copy Disk to Disk.

Follow instructions on the wizard screens. In each case, click Next to move to the next screen.

After the operation is complete, click Finish to close the dialog box.
