Cloning: selecting "source" & seeing "destination"!

Considering cloning my current 120GB Kingston SSD to a larger SSD (to be purchased).  I also have a Hypertec HDD installed.

I've manually gone partway through the cloning procedure & can see:

Disk 1 Hypertec HDD

Disk 2 Kingston SSD

If I select Disk 2 as the "Source" then I see the contents of Disk 1 (partitioned as E, F G & H) (see pic).  I'd expect to see the contents of Disk 2.  Is this correct - it's unnerving me?

Hello Peter,

welcome to Acronis forums! Are you using Acronis Disk Director 10 here? What is the OS? If you need just to migrate the data to a new SSD, I'd recommend using a free trial of Acronis True Image 2019, creating a backup backup and then recovering this backup onto the new drive instead of cloning with Acronis Disk Director. This would be much more safer approach as you'll have a full image of your data in case something goes wrong.

Are you suggesting that I should not use my v10 to clone?  And why not use v10 to carry out a backup as you suggest?

OS = Windows 7.

Acronis Disk Director 10 is a really old product and doesn't support Windows 7 and higher OS. We cannot guarantee that the cloning will be successful, so I'd definitely suggest against performing such operation (at least create a full system backup to be on the safe side)   

1.2 Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows NT 4.0 SP 6 •
  • Windows 2000 Professional SP 4
  • Windows XP SP 2
  • Windows Vista (all editions).
