No clone option on bootable Rescue Disk created using Acronis Backup Advanced for Hyper-V 11.5?

Hi Everyone,

I have Acronis Backup Advanced for Hyper-V 11.5 installed onto my Windows 2012 Standard Server.

I want to use it to clone the contents of my RAID array to a single disk. Towards this end I created a custom Recovery Disk (with appropriate RAID drivers), and booted from it. Unfortunately I am not seeing any 'Clone Disk' options on the boot disk. Attached are a couple of screen shots which show the menu which is presented.

I made the assumption that the Acronis product which I am using would operate in a similar fashion to the one in the link below -

Unfortunately when I right clicked on the disk within 'Disk Management' there was no option to 'Clone basic disk' (as shown in 'no_clone_disk_option.jpg', attached)!

Does the product I am using have the ability to clone disks from a bootable rescue CD? If so why am I not seeing a clone option in the menu? If not what product can I use?

Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Hi David,

The screen shots you've attached do not show disk management interface of 11.5 version (no_clone_basic_disk_option.jpg is showing GUI of 10th version). The cloning functionality is under Disk Management section of the Acronis Backup 11.5 bootable media GUI (any product edition) - it's very similar to what was in Acronis Backup and Recovery version 10. I've just checked the bootable media interface and cloning option is there as it should be. See attached screen shots, hope it will be helpful.

Thank you.
Best regards,
