#1 Post by krahni » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:20 pm

i am running osx el capitan and windows 10 on a 480gb kingston ssd on my x220 ...
what is the easiest way to backup the whole harddisk?
i tried with acronis 2017 bootstick, backup is running fine, restore to a new ssd also but after booting the new ssd clover only shows the windows 10 partition ...

I'm using SuperDuper for backup and Chameleon Wizard to activate boot. Never tried dual boot with Win as I have it on a separate hdd, so I don't know exactly what to expect there, but Chameleon should handle it well.

I'm using Macrium Reflect to a USB hard drive. Macrium Reflect is a free download from their website.

I'm using Windows's free, simple and quick tool, 3-button tool.


Lol, but it works. :D
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
