    Can I use Macrium to clone my internal drive to an external drive?


    The title pretty much lists my question.
    I'm using UEFI win10, v1909, and the external drive will be in an iDsonic external drive enclosure. If I have a serious problem, I can use this drive while deciding what to do.

    Another question - maybe stretching the topic. Can I use Macrium to clone a bootable USB drive to another USB drive?

  3. Internal Drive+Enclosure or External Drive

    Hi, I'm not very familiar with storage solutions so I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I'm looking to buy a 1TB+ drive for backup. External drives seem like more elegant solutions but when I looked on Newegg many reviews seem to suggest that they are not long lived (e.g. break within weeks/months). Is this true? If so, are internal drives + enclosures better? Or do any of you have better solutions that I don't know about (like I said I'm not that familiar with the storage department). Thanks.
