Hi all,

I tried to clone one 1.5 TB disk to a new 3.0 TB disk with an older PC that donīt has BIOS support for the 3.0 TB harddisk.
The 3.0 TB disk is shown as a 802 MB disk in the BIOS.
Both disks are identified well in DiskPatch. The capacity values in GB are correct for both disks but the number of blocks of the 3.0 TB disk is just about half of the blocks of the 1.5 TB disk.
That leads to a warning when I start the clone process that the target disk (3.0 TB) is smaller than the source disk (1.5 TB). The process would continue but then I just can select the start and end block of the 3.0 TB disk what would result in an uncomplete clone as the number of blocks of the source disk (1.5 TB ) is higher.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Developer and Support Tech

There are limitations when using DiskPatch on disks that are larger than 2Tb. The best thing to do is to get a smaller (less than 2Tb) target disk.

OK, thanks a lot for your help. I will go for a smaller disk as the clone target.
