Disk Clone and Shadow Storage

How to include Shadow Storage in Disk Cloning?

I found that Disk Clone, from within Windows, does not clone Shadow Storage. Is there an option to include Shadow Storage, and perhaps unmounting the source disk from Windows during Clone operation?

If found that Disk Clone from the AOMEIBR Emergency disk does clone Shadow Storage as expected, but I had to boot into Emergency Disk.

My use case: I cloned an external disk, which contained System Images. Shadow storage contained file history versions of data, and previous System Images, and I would not lose them.


  • We feel sorry to inform you that AOMEI Backupper do not support Shadow storage at present.

    Comment: it is good to be aware, that Shadow storage is not backed up or cloned.

    However in the rare cases where it is needed, it could be done with success from the bootable emergency CD. As I did.
