You may have noticed that MiniTool Partition Manager offers a function of disk copy. And you may ask why we need to copy disks.
What is the purpose of disk copy?
Generally, we use
the copy disk function to recover data, upgrade disk, and backup
How to use the copy disk function under Windows
Upgrade disk: If you want to upgrade your hard disk, you
would probably have to copy your disk to keep your data. With this function, you
can replace the older smaller hard disk with a newer larger hard disk without
having to reinstall the operating system and applications. One thing you should
be aware of is that the disk used as destination disk should be of at least the
same size as the source disk or larger to ensure all data will be cloned onto
the disk without loss.
Rescuing data: In case of hard disks defect, it
is especially important to back up data to an intact medium before starting any
recovery attempts because the recovery procedure may cause further defects
resulting from the inherent exposure of this procedure, while the physical disk
clone may cause much less exposure than any other usage due to its linear
operation. After cloning, you can perform a recovery on the destination disk
without fearing any further damages.
In addition to its ability to copy
disks, MiniTool Partition Manager has powerful
