    I have True Image 10 and I’m trying to do a clone of my c drive which is a 400GB Drive to my second hard drive which is d drive. My OS is Windows Vista Premium. I have used the wizard for cloning the hard drive then it restarts my computer and says that the clone has completed successfully .But when I check my second hard drive which is d drive it shows the drive has empty.

    This is the second message today with that problem - empty destination drive after cloning. I don't know why, but try cloning again with the bootable TI cd. Remember to disconnect or remove the original before trying to boot the clone for the first time.
