Win Updates Do Not Work On Cloned Drive But DO On Source Drive
I am sorry if this has been discussed somewhere on the forums here but I have spent a LOT of time and cannot find anyone with the exact same issue I am having.
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7 64 bit and I am trying to create a fully functional clone of my drive using TI 2010 latest build (7160).
I use the boot disk method as I found a LONG time ago this is the most successful way to clone a drive.
My current main drive is a Seagate 500 Gig drive and is a PERFECTLY functional clone of the 250 Gig drive that came with the system.
My problem arises when I clone to my Seagate 750 gig hard drive. I clone via an external docking port as I ALWAYS have in the past. The clone goes well but when I put the cloned drive into my system the drive works seemingly perfectly with the exception that Windows Updates no long works and my Windows Live Mail no longer works.
I take out the newly cloned drive and put the source drive back in and sure enough Windows Updates and Windows Live Mail work perfectly fine as they always have. It is ONLY the newly cloned 750 gig drive that cannot contact Windows Updates or Windows Live Mail, the 500 gig source drive CAN.
1: What's up with that?
2: Will TI 2011 fix this issue? I downloaded the trial version but have not tried it yet.
Can anyone help me before I totally lose my sanity here?
