I’ve inquired about this issue before and so far, received not much help

Try using the uninstaller on the disk image and uninstall Winclone, the reinstall.


I uninstalled Winclone and tried to reinstall and this is the new error im getting

i have the same problem" Cloning Error: Error setting permissions on device /dev/disk0s3" , and i am waiting for the new winclone version, maybe, winclone11, winclone12…i do hope winclone can fix all the problems, and do windows10 backup like apple Time Maching does!. i do hope the day can come as early as possible, and waiting patiently.

if Time Machine can backup and restore apple mac OX beautifully completely, why winclone cant backup and restore Windows10 wonderfully and easily? i do wait for it patiently! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

These types of errors are usually due to antivirus or security software. Try disabling and see if that resolves the issue.


thanks for your reply , anyway! :grinning:
