  3. Cloning a Hard Disk

    Hi Dav,

    Cloning a hard drive is way of transferring data from one hard disk to another drive to make the destination disk contain exactly the same data. You may also find additional information in this
    article.

    For an in-depth assistance on how to proceed with the process, we suggest that you post your query/concern on the
    TechNet forum. This forum is a
    community that is mainly composed of IT professionals who can cater to the complexity of your concern.

    Regards.

    Recover Data from disk

    If the data is really important to you I'd suggest (IF AT ALL POSSIBLE) cloning the drive onto another using a bit for bit clone first and attempting the recovery on the clone - a clean clone will not compromise the original material, where as a failed , or improper recovery attempt very well could.

    The problem is it is often not possible to know EXACTLY what method of recovery will work until after you have succeeded / or potentially ruined any further chances of recovery.

    I know it is for some an expensive option - but if you data is important to you it is always better to clone first - and try a few different approaches on the clone.

    I'm only saying this because I have met a number of people who lost their data attempting a recovery believing that since the drive was unreadable it could NOT be cloned - when in fact regardless of the state of the filesystem, and your operating systems ability to understand the data on the drive - the data its self is still usually very much readable at a hardware level even if you cannot recognize the data structure from inside an OS. It is thus often quite possible to make a "safe" clone of that data to attempt to reorganize for the OS without actually compromising your original drive.
