Clone Disk

Introduction

In Acronis 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 Acronis Backup 12.5: 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 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 True Image will still ask for reboot, disk will be cloned offline, and then computer will reboot back into Windows.
