Frustration with Copy Partition
I'm willing to accept that I'm doing something wrong here, but Disk Director won't tell me why I can't do it.
I'm trying to copy a 136GB NTFS partion with only 26GB used to a completely empty, completely different 75GB disk drive.
I select the partition, select Copy, then DD locks the partition
DD then shows me an overview of my drives with the destination drive "overlined" in green. If clock on that partition the Next button remains greyed out, despite the fact that the 25GB of used source would easily fit in the 75GB free space.
So I am forced to click cancel at which point the source partition values and graphical representation instantly change to 136GB used of 136GB! At the very least this last happening is strange.
I've also tried the same sort of operation in True Image Home 2009 with the disk clon wizard, with the same lack of success. BTW why isn't there a disk clone feature in DD?
I'm also surprised that there is no later update to DD since the 2007 2,160 build. I can't believe that there haven't been any bugs since then :-)
