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?
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)
