 Hello all,

I'm trying to clone a 2TB drive over to a new 4TB drive (3.6 usable), and the drive I want to clone is a 2TB GPT partition, but it doesn't give me the option to clone the drive?

 If I convert the 2TB drive to MBR it wants to turn my 4TB drive into a 2 Tb drive?

 

I'm confused.

 

 What's the best way to clone my 2TB drive ONTO my 4TB drive using Disk Director 12.

 

thanks

Hello Robert,

thank you for your posting! In Acronis Disk Director cloning is available for basic MBR disks only. I'd suggest installing a free trial of Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office and migrating your data using the backup\recovery approach instead of cloning. Create a backup of the desired data and then recover to a new drive.
