Hi, I’m using Winclone 8 to clone a Bootcamp partition (Windows 10) that I’m running on macOS Catalina. I am trying to clone the partition from the mac to an external SSD. When I try Volume to Volume cloning, I get the error: “There was an error during the disk to disk clone. There may be a problem with one of the volumes or the disks.”
It seems that the general solution on other threads has been to try to create and restore an image, so I tried that. I was able to “Create Image from Volume” without any problem, but when I try to restore that image on the Windows partition of the SSD, I get the following error: “The volume could not be formatted as NTFS. Check the drive and try again.” This is where I’m getting stuck.
I’ve tried formatting the SSD as MS-DOS (FAT), ExFAT, and Windows NT File System (NTFS) - the last one via Windows 10 - but I keep getting the same error. Is the problem perhaps the image? Any suggestions?
Please be aware that due to limited space on my Mac hard drive, I saved the Image to an external drive (not the one that I want to clone bootcamp to). Here’s the text from the winclone log, which includes both the Volume to Volume Cloning and the Restore Image processes.
