Clone a Hard Drive
Install Drive Snapshot to the computer you want to backup. Once downloaded, double click the installation file and follow the prompts to install.
Open Drive Snapshot. Press the Backup Disk to File button. Choose the volume or disk you want to backup. Press Next. Choose where you want to save the backup. Press the Browse button to select your drive or disk. Press Start Copy. If you want, you can create a backup password by entering a password in the password boxes and choosing Store Password before starting to clone a hard drive.
Clone one hard drive to another with Drive Snapshot by restoring the saved image to a new hard drive or the existing hard drive (if the drive crashed due to a virus or other problem). Press Restore Disk From File. Press Browse to choose the location and restore file. Press Next. All data on the hard drive you are restoring to will be lost. Basically, the destination hard drive will be formatted. Select the drive you want to restore. For instance, if you are restoring your main hard drive, you will most likely choose C:.
If you need to choose additional options before restoring, right click the drive you are restoring to or the name of the hard drive itself. You can choose options such as partitioning the drive, cleaning the disk and assigning a new drive letter.
Press Next and confirm that you want to continue with the restore process. If the drive you are wanting to restore is currently in use, press Unmount drive and continue. Do not stop Drive Snapshot, disconnect the external hard drive or turn off your computer until the restoration is complete. Otherwise you may corrupt your backup and current drive.
