  • Is the drive encrypted? That has caused this problem with others.
  • Win 10 is a very hardy product. I've done multiple test restores to an older PC which I use as a test bed for playing around without using universal restore. During restart, Windows seems to find enough drivers, etc to boot into the Windows desktop.…
  • @rizzomeister Download PA Pro 8.4 from here: https://www.disk-partition.com/changelog.html It will be the demo version but it may have what you need that is functional. I think it'll be good for 30 days. Or you can download the free (standard) vers…
  • Change the letter back in Disk Management.
  • The brand or size of the replacement disks have no bearing on universal restore. Universal is only used when there is a major system change such as a new motherboard. A normal restore will work fine with just a drive replacement.
  • Click on change icons, select the correct icon for each and hit apply. You many need to do this several times but they will come back. Happens to me all the time with these and sometimes others. I think it's a Windows glitch, not Aomei.
  • I assumed you needed more space to save files on your C drive. if i read the article correctly, after setting up storage space, when you save a file, say to your documents folder on C, it will actually use space on your other drive but you'll still …
  • First convert disk 2 to GPT. Then try either of these methods. Method 1 will wipe both disks so if you have a disk image stored elsewhere, you may be able to restore it to the new drive. Neither method is great and both have it's drawbacks. And meth…
  • I know it's a poor way to go about upgrading, but just download and install the Demo version. On the top line, near the center left of the page, you'll see "Register". Just put your original license key there and it will convert to the Pro version. …

  • Is the target drive a clean one or has it been used? Is the old drive encrypted? It shouldn't be when you try to clone. Another good way to transfer to a new drive is to make an image of the old drive and restore it to the new one.

  • The last day if you want the PC back to the state it was at it's latest. But you can pick any day or go the full if for example you picked up a virus but weren't exactly sure when it happened. 
  • Just boot up with the rescue USB. If you didn't make one, you can do so on your laptop. Boot into the pre windows environment with it and Aomei will be running and from there you can restore a partition or the entire drive (if a disk backup or the O…
  • Did you make a system (or disk) backup of your drive prior to the deletion?
  • I'll go out a limb and say what you want to do can't be done with Aomei. If I'm wrong possibly the forum admin can jump in and correct this. Or you can email support for a better answer. In order to restore the OS partition, you have to boot from th…
  • Use this to set up your schedule of one full backup once a month: https://www.backup-utility.com/help/how-to-schedule-backup.html Now, how many differential backups do you want to keep and when do you want to make them? You can use the scheme and ba…
  •  Again, do you have the Pro version?
  • Do you have the Pro version? Look here for directions on schemes: https://www.backup-utility.com/help/backup.html
  • Try using q-dir. Most people say that will work if Explorer doesn't. http://q-dir.com/
  • Not sure I can help. You seem to know what you want to do and how to do it. You should be ok.
  • If you make a SYSTEM image, Aomei will only restore those partitions necessary to make the disk boot. In this case it would be the EFI, MSR and C partitions. You do not need the Recovery partition and a lot of people try to delete it. Can't do that …
  • If you don't want to partition it keep your data, etc on another drive. Otherwise, no you can't just backup the OS and not the data on the same partition.
  • If you aren't using old system, just put existing OS SSD in new system. On reboot, windows usually hashes it out enough to get to your desktop so you can load new chipset drivers, etc. I say usually but going from Intel to AMD may cause a problem. I…
  • You would put Aomei on the old PC, make an image to the external drive. Create a bootable USB drive and boot from it on the new PC and restore the image to the new PC. Now, with all that being said, you can't copy programs that way to a new PC. They…
  • Yes, PA has the option to create a bootable USB drive. Works great for resizing partitions. Sorry I have Pro so I wasn't aware of free restrictions. I would copy without resizing then just resize the partitions you want with PA. No need to resize, E…
  • When you boot from that USB, it will load Aomei Backupper. You cannot have the backup image on that USB. It has to be on some other media. Once Backupper is loaded, you can remove the bootable USB.
  • You shouldn't need Partition Assistant, but it is there for you if after the restore you need to adjust the partitions for some reason. It is my experience that Aomei Partition Assistant is more reliable than Backupper.  Let me clarify that statemen…
  • Read this: https://www.backup-utility.com/help/disk-restore.html You only need to put the new drive in port 1, boot from the USB boot drive and restore your image, which should be located somewhere else in your PC or on an external drive. You can ad…
  • Install the new drive in place of the failed one. Boot into the "emergency stick". From there you can restore your image and you should be set to go. https://www.backup-utility.com/help/system-restore.html
  • Brand of disk does not matter. You can clone or use your backup to restore to the new drive. Either should work. Just make sure the new drive is formatted GPT and not MBR. If it is a new drive, this won't matter. You really want the unused part of t…
