Clone an Entire Partition with EaseUS Partition Master

Updated on Nov 28, 2018 by Daisy to Partition Master

To clone a partition for backing up data completely can be easy with the best partition clone software - EasUS Partition Master. It will be easy to clone an entire partition with EaseUS Partition Master.

Partition Clone on a hard drive can be useful, either as a means of making a backup or for distribution of an identical environment to multiple computers. Backup should be essential to those who spend a lot of time on the computer or use your computer for storing significant personal or business dealings. There are many ways you can unintentionally lose your data, such as careless deletion, formatted, lost partition, virus infection, unexpected shutdown, etc. So in the case of data loss, by backing up, you can still get your files back easily on backup disks or other safe places where you choose to back up your data.

Partition cloning is a category of software which copies the contents of one partition on the hard disk to another or into an "image" (a file). Often, the contents of the first partition are written to an image file as an intermediate step, and the second partition is loaded with the contents of the image. After cloning, if your source partition failed to access, you can still restore your files from the backup partition.

One would think it would be easy; unfortunately, some operating systems seem to go out of their way to make it difficult. The normal disk/partition clone software usually clones system-readable data. This can only be used for common file-by-file backup. However, with long file names, the use of swap files and the Windows registry, it is no longer possible to safely clone partition from one partition to another file-by-file, and it is also quite a different thing if you want to copy Operating System from one partition to another.

The latest version of EaseUS Partition Master is released with the new function: Partition/disk clone, which enables users to clone exactly duplication partition/disk, including system-readable data and recoverable data. The sector by sector clone makes cloned partition completely intact. That means you will never lose any data even the system neglected. No intermediate file is created in the process. Unlike a disk imaging tool, the Partition/Disk Clone Wizard of EaseUS Partition Master does not save the image to partition/disk (for backup or other purposes) but applies it directly to the selected partition/disk. With it, you can create a complete clone of your partition.
