Hello,

I am trying to clone disk with Acronis Disk Doctor 12.5 and documentation ("Chapter 6.2 Basic disk clone", https://dl.acronis.com/u/pdf/ADD12.5_userguide_en-US.pdf).

In documantion I see step "Right-click the basic disk you want to clone (i.e. a source disk), and then click Clone basic disk". But in program I can see only "Copy volume" option (ttps://gyazo.com/bb937e5cfbdc2779855bcd28e790f0d3).

It is a different name of the same option? Or it is another option?

Hi! 
welcome to Acronis forums! Copy volume is a different option. On your screenshot a separate volume on the drive is selected, as the result you see options available for volumes. Right-click the Disk you want to clone (i.e. a source disk), then you should be able to select Clone basic disk.

I'm having the same issue in the sense that there is no longer a "disk clone" option. 

I was wondering if this is due to me upgrading to Win 11 and whether Disk Director is now redundant?

Hello Matthew,

Windows 11 is indeed not supported by Acronis Disk Director, hence we cannot guarantee the correct functioning of the product. I'd suggest looking at Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office - our most up-to-date software for data protection and data management.
