I have a 1 TB drive in a Mac with a Mac partition, a recovery partition, and a BOOTCAMP partition. I formatted my new drive, also a 1 TB dive with the same partition scheme. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to move the Recovery and Mac partition to the new drive without error. But on their tool, they say that cannot move the NTFS windows 7 partition. Your software was recommended.
OK, I just bought your software (not pro), because the free demo does not go far enough to actually get to the point where it fails.
I thought I could just use the clone function, and “move” the existing NTFS Windows partition to the new NTFS partition on the new drive. Nope, that fails almost immediately. It just fails. Would be nice if your software would actually tell us why it fails. Nada.
Off to the docs. OK, I will make an image and then do a restore once the new Bootcamp partition is set up using the Mac. So, off to image the existing NTFS partition. (I did a disk check, it reports no errors.)
So now I am trying to create an image of the original Windows partition. I selected it in the tool, and picked an external 1TB Mac drive to accept the file. The drive I am trying to image is a 750 GB partition about 50% full.
That has been running now for maybe 8 hours, and is only 15% complete! Seriously? Just how long does it take to create an image? Is this normal?
It seems to be stuck at 15% done, “Verifying the integrity of the image”. The task manager shows the program using CPU, and the window seems to be still active. The “15% completed” shows up when I hover over the progress bar (for example.)
Perhaps I wasted my money on this software. Or I am just completely not understanding how to use it.
Open to suggestions on how to accomplish this. If someone has a better way to do this, I am open for suggestions
