Winclone 7 not working - 'There was an error during the disk to disk clone'


I purchased Winclone 7 to create a clone of a Bootcamp partition from an internal HD inside a MacBook Pro running 10.12.6 to a WD SSD in an external USB enclosure (to then be installed to replace the HD). When attempting to clone from ‘Volume to Volume’, the following error prompt appears: “There was an error during the disk to disk clone. There may be a problem with one of the volumes or the disks.” Volumes are all working with no issues and the original Bootcamp partition boots without problems.

This error occurred both in WIP and Block Copy modes, with the drive formatted as ExFAT, MS-DOS (FAT), and NTFS (although my understanding is that Winclone begins by formatting as NTFS regardless). When attempting to rollback to Winclone 6, my license key for 7 doesn’t work so I’m unable to test it.

Could I please receive support for the issue in 7? Also, would I be able to test a licensed version of 6 or a previous version of 7 to see if this works on my end in the meanwhile?

I believe you wrote in directly and I responded there. I would recommend saving an image then restoring it. It seems to resolve this issue.
