In Acronis Cyber Protect 15 and Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5 you can clone basic disks using bootable rescue media. Disk cloning in GUI is available only on Linux-based bootable media and only allows cloning basic MBR disks.
For more information on creating Acronis Bootable media, see How to create a bootable media. Remember to specify a serial number during bootable media creation, otherwise disk management will not be available.

Clone an active Windows system directly to a new drive without stopping your system and restarting Windows. This can be easily done with Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office/Acronis True Image and its Active Cloning feature.
The term "Active Cloning" refers to a disk cloning operation that does not require you to reboot the computer to complete the operation. Please note that in some cases Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office/ Acronis True Image will still ask for a reboot, the disk will be cloned offline, and then the computer will reboot back into Windows.
