Beware - AOMEI erased my source disk
I am not a happy customer. AOMEI BackUpper just trashed my source disk.
The sequence of events was I chose clone disk and then chose the source and destination disk. The system was running off of the destination disk so I got a message from AOMEI saying it needed to restart the computer to do the backup. After doing some file operations it tried to reboot my computer and I all I got was a cryptic error message.
I rebooted the computer again and saw that AOMEI had wiped out the allocation tables on my source disk. It now shows 1 terabyte of free disk. It is frustrating because I suspect the data is still there but I cannot get to it anymore.
I wonder if there is any way to recover the data? Apparently AOMEI BackUpper cannot keep track of which disk is source and which disk is destination after a reboot.
I miss the days of write rings on mag tapes or sliding tabs on floppies that can prevent stuff like this.
