Need to clone SSD C: drive, but it's not recommended
New PC, Win 10, with twin 1 gig SSDs (one to be a backup in case of emergency) for C: and a much large Raid Mirror for spinning drives for data as D: PC is for engineering, autocad use. User loves the speed of loading windows, and the programs. The SSD for C: is working like a champ, and the other identical SSD has no letter assigned. After a few months, user has loaded all the software he needs on C and it's time to clone or mirror C but leave it without a letter to avoid damage from virus or user, but can be assigned in the case of the other SSD failing. Bought Acronis True Image 2017 and dang, it came with no support from Acronis. Tried to clone and it fails. Yes, it says it needs to boot to do the clone off line, but just comes back with nothing accomplished. Found this forum, and it says not to do the clone. Says do a backup and restore, but it won't lock down C: and while it says newer versions of Acronis can handle everything and the new SSD would be bootable, it doesn't give me that confidence for Acronis for 2017. And 2017 was the most current I found to purchase, just before Christmas. Can someone give me a quick step by step, for my course of action here? Thanks.
