I am trying to clone a harddrive with important data to another harddrive to make sure we can keep those files safe.
Now my old HD is a 500GB 3.5" and the new one is 1TB 3.5". My old HD is plugged directly to my computer and the new HD is plugged with an HD enclosure.
Once I mount the harddrive, I see all the files, no problem. I can copy some files over without a problem. But when I try to copy all files over, its starts to transfer them and then stops after 30 seconds and all files on the old HD are unreadable.
Now, I tried using Clonezilla to clone the old HD to the new HD. It started copying and then after about 30 seconds it said "Could not complete".
When I try and clone the HD by using dd, it give me "I/O errors, 0 bytes transferred".
Any solutions for this? What could be the problem?
