  1. Cloning Profile Partition


    Quite some time ago, with lots of help from folks here, I put my boot partition and user profiles/data on separate hard drives, C: and D:, respectively.

    Recently, the drive for my user profiles, D:, started having a SMART error. This prevented a normal reboot sequence which has prevented me from being able to update Windows.

    I decided to upgrade my storage. I replaced my 10,000rpm boot partition with an SSD. This went fine, the computer runs windows. Then I swapped my older WD Blue HDD profile partition, D:, with a current WD Blue HDD.

    When I tried booting and logging on with the newly cloned profile drive, I was told "The User Profile Service service failed the sign in." and I'm returned to the login screen.

    I believe I've had to fix this issue before at some point, but can't remember how and googling isn't working.

    Please help! How do I fix this or how do I appropriately clone my user partition to anew hard drive when I have separate boot and profile drives?

    It might be important that my original user profile partition was encrypted using bit locker.

    :)

    partition cloning help!

    Well I just bought a SATA seagate 320gb 7200.10 hard drive. I had to get a power adapter, but anyway. It's in as Drive F (did disk management). Now all I want to do is clone the partition from my old hard drive to my new hard drive. Copy windows and everything else over on my new hard drive, take out my old drive and then use the new drive as the primary C drive. I have norton ghost, and partition magic. I heard ghost is much better. Could someone tell me step by step how to accomplish this? I think I know how, but I do NOT wanna take any chances here..

    clone MBR HD to bootable GPT partition?

    My HP Vista laptop took a swim and died. I pulled the 320MB HD, put it in an external enclosure and found it still good. Bought a new Dell Win 10 machine w/ 1TB HD. Plan was to:


    • Partition off a piece of the new 1TB w/ native Win10 Disk Management.

    • Clone the 320MB Vista drive into the new partition w/ Easeus Partition Manager.

    • Run Paragon-adaptive-restore on the Vista partition.

    • Set up as dual-boot Win10 / Vista.
    Ran into problems right away. Apparently can't clone the MBR HD to a GPT partition and have it remain bootable. Don't see a way to do this without wiping the new Dell 1TB clean – which I'm hesitant to do, especially since I'm about 6000 miles from
    home right now.


    • What's the solution to cloning the MBR drive to a bootable GPT partition?

    • Am I on the right track? I really want to preserve this Vista installation - I have 30+ years of data in legacy programs on it that would be very difficult to access in Win10.
    TIA
