Main Threads:How to copy MBR without copying all partitions
  • I have a 2TB hard drive divided into 4 500gb partitions. Drive C has the operating system and programs, Drive D has Data.

    I want to clone the C Drive only to a 1TB external hard drive so I have a backup drive in case my 2TB hard drive fails (I back the D Drive up to another hard drive more frequently than I want to back up the C Drive).

    My understanding is that with Aomei Backupper I can backup individual partitions to smaller drives. What I'm unsure about is how I back up the Master Boot Record (MBR). I assume I need this to restore the C Drive as a system drive.

    I'd be very grateful for any suggestions or advice.

    My thanks in advance.

    Have a great day.
