Cloning SATA Drives?


T

I have Acronis True Image version 8. It's an older version, about 5
years old. This version allows one to clone drives.

In my new comp, I have SATA drives. I'm wondering if this version of
TI will clone this type of drive. I seem to get the impression from
reading some posts in forums that there is a difference between
cloning IDE or SATA. drives.

Acronis 'support' is non-existent.

Yes it will.

Not in that sense.

Thats just plain wrong.

Unbelievable! I found the very page I needed, explaining exactly how
to do this with the 5-year-old Version 8 Acronis that I have.

How's that for luck?

Software normally sees drives a device PHYSICALDRIVE1, PHYSICALDRIVE2
etc Logically, they are the same and the operating system takes care
of any differences. It is the same for USB drives as well.

Not with the CLONERS being discussed necessarily.

Cloners dont necessarily even use the OS at all.

Fraid not with the cloners being discussed.

If either of your drives is a Seagate or Maxtor, then you can use
DiscWizard to clone them. DiscWizard is an OEM version of Acronis True
Image. If your drive is another brand, you may be able to use ALT-T-O
(Technical Override) to clone it.
