This has made me nervous. I am having some components replaced in my computer in a few days and I wanted to replace the hard drive that is a clone of the one I have. I think I am okay but I do not understand how to make a clone using the rescue disc - which I made. I made a clone of the drive a few months ago plus I do full backups with incremental back ups. I thought I was fine with the clone but now I do not know. I planned to make a new fresh clone before shutting down and having the components replaced. Can someone point me to instructions for replacing my harddrive with a clone
I think most of us will also recommend that you have a good backup (as a precaution) prior to any clone - just in case. Even Acronis recommends this in the documentation. It's not a requirement, but it is your safety net, should something go wrong, for whatever reason.
The important point about creating the Acronis bootable Rescue Media, is that this will always be needed should you suffer a total disk failure and have to start again with a new / replacement blank disk drive unless you are going to do a clean install of Windows then reinstall ATIH in order to restore your backup from within Windows.
A full, offline backup is a great option - this is a backup in proprietary Acronis True Image Backup (TIB) format. Backups can be used at any point in time if you need to roll back to the backup or grab files/folders from it down the road.
No, the backup is a proprietary backup format that should be saved somewhere else (a third drive, a network share, something like that). This can be used at any time to be restored with your recovery media. Backup and restore is ultimately the same results as a clone, but offers the advantage of being able to use that backp anytime you want. A clone is \"on the fly\" and offers no safety net on it's own.
In an ideal world, I would have recommended that you had used your ATIH 2015 to make full disk & partitions backup images to an external backup drive long before you got to the status you see today. Do you have any such backups available to use to recover your computer to the new WD 1TB HDD if the current clone operation fails
With a fialing disk drive it is difficult to know how best to solve the problem. I would be inclinded to run the drive manufacturer's disk utility to see if it can (temporarily) fix the problem; once I have done that I would create a backup (rather than a clone) so that I have something to fall back on if the clone goes badly wrong.
I have now installed the new empty 1TB hard drive, attached the USB Speed Master with the 500GB hard drive which has 3 complete Acronis backups on it and booted from the USB Acronis recovery stick I created earlier.
It opened the USB HDD as C: drive. I have found and tried opening all three of the backups. The first two were reported as corrupt and the third tells me that \"It is not the last volume of the backup archive.
For the 3 backups on the 500GB drive - were these created on that drive or were they copied from the failing drive to it If the latter then it is possible that they were taken from an area of the failed drive with bad sectors
The backups were created on that 500GB USB Speed Master drive when the C:drive was reporting an imminent failure. Acronis completed them without problems or reporting any issues. Like all backup systems, you never know if they have worked until you need to use them (and so should test them!)...
..... but all this action was compressed into such a small period of time (compared to the last 3 years of PC use without backing up - of course!) that there has been no time to check. I'm downloading original Dell image (with Windows 8.1 now to create USB recovery on to new 1TB HDD, then I have to see how I go about doing the upgrade to Windows 10, as that was initiated by Microsoft without original discs etc, then installing my 'User' backup folders and files and then installing the extra programs etc..... After all that, when I am back up and running to almost where I was before, I'll create some Acronis backups and test them..... All this closing the stable door once the horse has bolted of course. Oh well....onwards and upwards.
Michael, glad to hear that all is up and working again for your wife (and you!). Definitely a good idea to have regular backups of your Windows OS and data, plus to check that these are good by opening the backup files and copying a random selection of files / folders to any temporary location, plus also ensure that you have a good working Acronis Rescue Media available.
1. Cloning is not bad. In fact, it gives you an immediately bootable backup that you don't have to restore. I routinely clone because when disaster strikes, you're not doing tech work of reinitiating a computer with a rescue disc and then having to restore. Cloning must be checked: after you clone, immediately shut down the computer, disengage the source disc, leave in the cloned disc, and check that it boots. This is most readily done in a machine with hot swap bays, of course.
If Acronis cannot clone a boot drive of Windows while it is running, how can Acronis be used to back up the same drive while Windows is running Isn't partition backups effectively the first step of a drive clone
With the advent of ATI 2018, Acronis now does allow for cloning from within Windows using the same Microsoft VSS snapshot method that is used when creating backups of the OS. This is new in the 2018 version and wasn't available when this topic was written.
The key message(s) of this topic still remain valid, in particular, have a good backup of the Source drive before attempting this type of operation. Users are only human and therefore are also capable of making mistakes - doing this when cloning can be disastrous if the wrong drive is cloned!
Make a full disk & partitions backup of your source drive (with the bad sectors) as a safety net to allow you to recover as much data as possible. Hopefully if your Windows OS is still booting OK the bad sectors are not in any vital/critical areas of the drive.
Hi Steve thanks for the quick responce. I do have a full disk and partitions backup done plus have a recent Acronis cloud backup. The old C drive has been booting and working ok but when I ran a Crystal app the other day it came up with a caution warning and also said it had 60800 hours on it! So that's when I decided to get a new WD 2TB hard drive and clone my C drive before it quit. I home built this rig a number of years ago so it is old like me! One thing that I noticed is the time remaining in the clone process went from 2 hours to 8 hours and seems stuck there. Is this normal I have never cloned a drive before so all this new to me.......
