FAQs about Clone Dynamic Disk Volume

If you have further questions about cloning dynamic volume, follow and find answers here:

1. Why cannot I clone a dynamic disk?

The reason why you cannot directly clone a dynamic disk is that the target disk is a basic disk, and most cloning software cannot directly switch a basic disk to a dynamic during the cloning process.

So to clone a dynamic disk, you need to first convert the target basic disk to dynamic. Then, turn to disk cloning software to clone the dynamic disk.

2. Is it OK to clone HDD to SSD?

Yes, sure. As long as the SSD storage capacity is equal to or larger than the used data capacity on the source HDD disk, you can directly clone the HDD to SSD.

3. How to convert dynamic to basic disk?

  • Launch EaseUS Partition Master and right-click on the dynamic disk, select "Convert to basic".
  • Click "Execute Task".

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
