    hi
    i have 1 hd maxtor (of 200 GB) and a Hitachi of 250 giga
    ok i have the os in the maxtor (first partition 60 GB and second partition the rest )

    i want to copy the first partion of maxtor to the hitachi (with clone hd i can't copy a partition only the whole hd)

    i did a backup of the first partition maxtor , i made a partition of the same size 60 GB in the hitachi) and i restored the backup to the hitachi

    right? o i did a mistake?

    Hello mantra,

    I can't remember for sure (hopefully someone else can confirm or otherwise) but I think that, when cloning (as to opposed to imaging) from one drive to another, TI uses a default cluster size of 4KB.

    Regards

    Open "My Computer", right click on the drive you want to check and select "Properties". From the "Properties" window select "Tools" and then click on "Defragment Now". In the "Disk Defragmenter" window select the relevant drive and then click "Analyze". When the analysis has finished select "View Report" and check the cluster size under "Volume information:" (See screenshot below).

    Regards
