Clone Windows 10 for 2nd Machine
I have a simple need: create a PC that can 'take over' if my primary box fails. This means cloning everything on the primary drive - other than personal data - on my Win 10 laptop to a Win 10 desktop.
I can't see from the documentation how this is accomplished. Being just a dumb customer, I don't have the technical knowledge to wade through the Disk Director manual to figure out which tool(s) to engage. It would appear that I would have to have Disk Director installed on both boxes - is this permissible? If not, how to 'copy over' the current installation on Box 2 with the clone version? Are their license issues with Windows by doing this? You can see where I'm going here.
The next question would be: how can I keep these boxes in sync? Would I have to perform another manual operation from time to time? (Not a problem, really, if the first operation is relatively straightforward.)
Cloning Windows has always been a Catch-22: you need the O/S to clone the O/S unless running something like Norton Ghost. I just want to know if what I'm attempting is possible so I don't have to install 100+ apps on Box 2.
