    Macrium and Linux Disks cloning


    Hi folks
    just in case some people don't realize it but it's 100% possible to clone Linux formatted HDD's / SSD'swith Macrium (from within Windows too --you don't need o use rthe stand alone program).

    Ensure though when you attach the Linux drives / SSD's you ignore Windows request to format them or any messages about "incompatible file systems"

    Simply select clone disks and carry on. The target SSD / HDD can be smaller than the source provided that the /home and / partitions (on Linux) are large enough on the destination drive.

    If you know this already - then OK but I know some people on these Forums use Linux for playing with etc and might not know about easy ways of backing up Linux systems (VM's are easy - this is for physical HDD's/ SSD's)

    The target disk should be bootable in nearly every case -- it'a always worked for me --just remember NOT to format the disks at windows prompt and ignore incompatible file system messages from Windows.

    cheers

  2. Cloning an external HDD

    Doing a clean Install while switching hard drive is always recommend due to the fact that the hardware configuration of each PC is different.

    What I suggest is to Clone the other data partitions except C:

    Use Macrium reflect a freeware for this.

    Macrium and Linux Disks cloning

    Make clone disk bootable?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting to Microsoft Community.

    Since the back-up is made from the Macrium software, I would suggest you to check this link on ‘Restoring
    a System image from Windows
    ’ provided by the software developers.

    To restore from a cloned drive to the original drive, it appears that it would require a working Windows operating system on the original drive. Since this is related to the applications and data within your system, I would suggest you to get in touch
    with the software developers of Macrium to get a confirmation with this.

    Hope it helps.
