Last Update Date : Apr 04. 2018

Copying Disk Using Recovery

IMPORTANT: In order to perform a Copy, the Hard Drive or SSD you are copying to must have, at minimum, the same amount of free space as the amount of data you are copying. Ex. If you are copying 60GB of data, the second Hard Drive or SSD must have 60GB of free space.

Copying to a New Hard Drive or SSD

1 Connect the hard disk drive or SSD, that you wish to copy to, to your computer.
2 On the Start Screen, type 'Recovery'. Select Recovery from the search options.
3 In the Recovery screen, click Disk copy from the main menu.
