I regularly clone my Dell Inspiron 1525 hard drive with Vista home premium to an identical HDD through a USB using either Acronis True Image 2010 Home or Easus.
This time when I use it, either I get a message saying the source disk is dynamic and that version of either must be upgraded to clone dynamic.
- C and D on the drive show as basic in Administrative tools
C and D drives show 70 at 1c2 when using HxD tool in the partition hex table, which is disksecure multiboot – whatever that is.
The 1c2 values of C and D do not show 42, which is the 1c2 value for dynamic. D is a recovery drive on the disk, not the CD/DVD drive.
I do not know what it was when the procedure was working. Why would two separate cloning tools read the disks as dynamic when they're not – and if so, where, except for the hex partition table, do I make a change to allow them to clone?
