An essential part of my ong-time backup process is to rotate via cloning every couple of weeks. I clone the system disk onto another disk of the same size, switch to using the clone and put the original in storage, etc. Well, I tried to clone my system disk (now encrytped with PGP Whole Disk Encryption) to a USB-connected drive of the same manufacturer, model, and size (500GB) but I keep getting errors -- supposedly indicating that the destination drive is not as large as the source drive. Here are the details: 1) I encrypted my laptop system disk (two partitions) using PGP Whole Disk Encryption. I connected a new disk to USB (same manufacturer, model, and size of system disk), initialized it, formatted to NTFS, and ran chkdsk /R. 2) Having done all that, I booted the Acronis TI Echo Workstation rescue CD and tried to clone the current system drive onto the USB connected drive. I specified to delete all partitions on the destination drive and do an as-is copy to keep partition layouts exactly as on the source drive. Of course I got a pop-up message that TI could not read the file structure and I selected to proceed with sector-by-sector backup. 3) Almost immediately, I got an error pop-up that the copy failed, indicating several things but mainly that the destination disk is not big enough. Am I doing something wrong? How can I clone an encrypted system disk with TI Echo Workstation?
