I’m preparing to move my Bootcamp partition from my 2018 MacBook Pro to a 2020 iMac (both running Catalina).
I’ve used Winclone in the past successfully but did run into challenges attempting to use it to restore Bootcamp from an image earlier this year when my MBP came back from Apple service.
I installed version 8.2 this morning and initiated Creating an Image from my Bootcamp Volume to a file in the documents folder of my internal 2TB SSD.
I’m experiencing unexpected symptoms:
- Very high CPU usage (often showing 600% in Activity Monitor for the wimcapture process)
- Associated high CPU temps and fan speed
- Very slow imaging performance
- GUI in Winclone does not show progress on the progress bar (The logs are indicating progress)
I took a little screenshare video that may provide more context: https://share.vidyard.com/watch/X1zmgqDE77pNt6yXPfrvuL?
I’m hoping someone will have some insight regarding improving performance / GUI experience.
I’m tempted to use target disk mode with a thunderbolt 3 cable instead of using the file.
Open to suggestions!
