Disk clone software

Post by Heinz Doofenshmirtz »

Hi all,
have tried to clone the installation disk (whole disk) using some imaging software, actually paragon hard disk manager and also acronis true image 2016.
Managed to get the disk image without issues in both cases.
One done tried simulating a restore.
Apparently all went fine, but when booting up something was wrong, meaning that nothing worked as expected. cant really remember the error but basically would have needed to mess around with grub rescue console (or something similar).
128 GB SSD, two partitions (root and swap), image was sitting on a data disk (NTFS). Have another SSD with win10 installed.
Basically I dont really care much about which software should be used but really need to store and be capable to restore a whole disk image without having to mess around with consoles and grub.
Any help welcome and thanks in advance!!!
