How to clone a disk with BootCamp using bootable media

Symptoms

You start a backup of a disk or of the entire Mac, but if fails with the following errors:

  • CreateSnapshot function failed
  • Failed to create volume snapshot

Cause

By default Boot Camp partition is mounted in read-only mode. If Boot Camp partition is mounted in read-write mode by a third-party tool, Acronis software cannot lock this partition for backup.

Solution

As a workaround, mount the Boot Camp partition in read-only mode before running the backup.
